After being dumped, #DateStonyfield Craigslist ad seeking ‘Udderly Terrific First Date’ wins the Internet


Moo-ve over cupid: Jilted yogurt factory up for sale seeks something more stable with online personal ad. Making hay optional.

LONDONDERRY, NH – Last week we shared the news that Stonyfield Farms was being sold by its parent company. The French-based Danone is moo-ving on to greener pastures, and all that. 

But it’s no use crying over spilled milk, right? That was so last week.

This week, someone at Stonyfield is looking on the bright side of being dumped. Instead of binge-watching “The Ranch” on Netflix curled up in the barn with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, the little New Hampshire dairy that started with seven cows and a dream, is having a little fun on Craigslist.

On Tuesday, an ad in the New Hampshire General Community section popped up, titled “Udderly Terrific First Date.” It’s posted by a “34-year-0ld yogurt company” seeking “an ideal partner” who would “enjoy rolling up their jeans and taking long walks through cow pastures,” one who is “socially involved” and ready to “stir-things-up!”

You have to read it for yourself (click here) but before you do, we want to share one of our favorite lines: “We would talk about changing the world through creating safer food for everyone including our planet – and we would make OMG GMO jokes all night long. We could even drink milk out of champagne glasses (cheers!)”

Good for you, Stonyfield Farms. We can’t wait to see who steps up to #DateStonyfield.
