"As a microbiologist and whole food enthusiast, we started Tree Island in 2012 after returning from France where we tasted artisan yogurt made with fresh, whole milk. Nothing comparable existed in BC, so we set-out to create it ourselves.

We are now making grass-fed, artisan yogurt at our production plant in the Comox Valley. We use 100% fresh whole BC milk, carefully select the best ingredients and handcraft our yogurt in small batches using a traditional, slow-kettle cooking method.

Our mission is to nourish our community by strengthening the local food system and promoting land stewardship."

Traceable Milk

Transparency makes for a clear choice when it comes to the milk you buy!

While Avalon Dairy has celebrated many ‘firsts’ over the 100+ years we’ve been in business, in 2015 we were part of something truly special when, working together with eco-dairies, we debuted BC’s first Traceable Milk to market! When you buy traceable milk, you are participating in the combined, organized and transparent efforts of BC’s eco-dairy industry, ensuring that you the consumer can see which farm your milk comes from, and that you can access, explore and learn more about the particular farm and its dairy farming practices.

What difference would it make if you knew where your milk source is from? With Avalon traceable milk, you can be assured that all of the products come from cows whose welfare is a top priority. In fact, you can even visit the farm online  and see for yourself.

This nourishing new addition to the Avalon product line is an excellent source of protein, carbohydrates and healthy milk fat. The conjugated linoleic acid contained in Avalon Traceable Milk is a fatty acid which occurs naturally in dairy products and has been shown to lower cholesterol as well as protect against certain types of cancer. Other immune supporting factors in Avalon Traceable Milk include the anti-oxidant protection of selenium.

Now, with each Avalon traceable product, you will not only get the freshest, highest quality raw materials, you will also be guaranteed that the production process itself excels at every level. We are proud to be the Home of BC’s First Traceable Milk.
