This is a real find. The yogurt is soo much better than typical froyo. Flavors change weekly and there are numerous toppings to choose from. The original is our favorite as it has the perfect blend of a yogurt flavor, but not sour.

Super fresh flavors! Very clean place, very friendly workers; A fun, cool joint to go to. Very kid friendly and the spoons are recycled corn, so you put them in the bin to get re-recycled!

What a great little store. They serve homemade yoghurt from local farms. I had their frozen vanilla with fresh fruit salad. Delicious yoghurt smoothies at a great price.

Unbelievably good! Seriously the best I've ever had. Pinkberry is nothing in comparison! Yummy and amazing! It's healthy but doesn't taste like it is (in a good way)!! I always get original but it's nice that they change the flavors every week to something new and delicious. Everyone in the world needs to try this yogurt before they die!

The whole experience with Ayelada is wonderful and I will return again and again. They have struck a balance between using local ingredients and appreciating local farmers without becoming pretentious and offering quality in the yogurt and the toppings without pricing the locals out of becoming regulars. This is a feat for a Berkshire-based business to achieve and I hope... More

Handmade yogurt from local dairy and fruit producers. You choose the toppings - which are too many to choose from. We stop at Ayelada at least once a week, but would stop every day. Our favorites include Green tea, mango, lemon!

Real frozen yogurt, locally crafted, without the chemicals! Creative small batch style flavors, with so many toppings to choose from! Ayelada is a family favorite, a local favorite and a somewhat guilt free favorite in Pittsfield. You can taste test the new flavors, and the original is always "on tap"!

Description
Ayelada is the Greek word for cow and that is where our story begins.

The best frozen yogurt starts with the Cow!!!

Our frozen frozen yogurt comes from a cow - not from a mix. We make our frozen yogurt in small batches every day, on-site using skim milk and low fat yogurt from local dairies and fresh ingredients. The dairy used to make our yogurt comes from small independent farms and does not contain antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones.

Our frozen yogurt is high in calcium and protein, does not contain preservatives or any artificial sweeteners and since we use real skim yogurt it's loaded with live and active probiotic cultures. We create our own seasonal flavors from local farms and artisans when possible so they are ever changing! You can enjoy our frozen yogurt spring, summer, fall and even winter!

There are only a handful of stores that craft their own frozen yogurt. Most have chosen for ease of operations to serve frozen yogurt from prepackaged mixes.
