When I was a kid, I thought that fresh milk from the Baguio Dairy Farm came straight from the the cow’s udder. It took a few years for me to realize that “fresh” doesn’t always mean straight from the source.
Therefore, the fresh yoghurt from Baguio Dairy Farm definitely does not come straight from the cow.
On my most recent visit, I got strawberry, melon, plain , cherry and blueberry.
I love the yoghurt from Baguio Dairy Farm. I usually add a bit of sugar and candy sprinkles to the plain yoghurt but the flavored ones need no adjusting! I think the melon variant just came out — or maybe — it was my lucky day — I came when their fridge was well-stocked. The yoghurt was rich, thick, and creamy. The fruit bits were nice and squishy . The cherry and the strawberry flavors were almost the same to me.
Packaging is definitely not trendy – but hey, it works. And for 40 Pesos a small (330ml?) bottle, it is SUPER worth it. The thing is, yoghurt is creamy — these bottles are meant for water, not yoghurt. So unless you slice the bottle open and scoop all the contents with a spoon, you end up wasting some really good stuff in there.
I know some yoghurt makers use powdered milk — I can’t really tell the difference but hey buying it from the farm tells me it’s made from real milk PLUS I feel good because I help the cooperative that makes them. Here’s a close up look of the really thick and creamy Baguio Dairy Farm Plain Yoghurt.
To get your the Baguio Dairy Farm Yogurt, you’ll need to go there. Hehe. It is not distributed anywhere else, according to the attendant.

Or,when coming from down town Baguio, keep driving till you reach the Balacbac/Green Valley Junction. The road forks — take the road going up. Keep going till you hear cows mooing!
Enjoy your yoghurt!
