#TastetheStrausDifference

We need rain to grow the grasses that the cows eat to produce organic milk. Even though SF Bay Area has had rain this week, California is still in a serious drought. Fortunately, with the implementation of carbon farming at the Straus Dairy Farm, compost application and rotational grazing practices have enabled strong pasture growth. With this pasture management, there is more pasture than the cows can consume. With the extra grass, the farm has been able to harvest it to make silage (fermented to preserve it) used to feed the cows during the non-pasture season.⁣

This harvesting run happened before the rain started this week! ⁣

What is silage? It is usually grass compacted and stored in airtight conditions that naturally ferments and is used as on-farm animal feed.⁣

What are the benefits? Harvesting silage saves farmers money from purchasing feeds and reduces the farm’s carbon footprint. ⁣

Recent meta-analysis results published in the scientific journal “Agriculture, Ecosystems, and Environment,” show that by adopting certain best management practices, organic farms can boost the amounts of carbon captured in the soil – upping the soil organic carbon by an average of 18 percent and increasing microbial biomass carbon by an average of 30 percent above organic’s normal carbon-storage. ⁣

The Organic Center states, “this study is the first of its kind – looking within organic management to not only highlight the areas where organic excels at locking greenhouse gas in the soil, but also identifying the areas that have the biggest beneficial impact, enabling organic growers to maximize their ability to fight climate change.”⁣

At #StrausFamilyCreamery, we know that organic dairy farm pastures are ideal for implementing #carbonfarming. Through a series of regenerative agricultural practices, carbon farming helps move carbon from the atmosphere and into the soil. ⁣

@Potus Biden said he wants farmers and ranchers to tell him how to fight climate change. Bay Area farms are a good place to start.⁣

“I’m creating a farming and food model that can be sustainable for the land, for the animals and for rural communities, and at the same time is providing high-quality food for our local communities,” #AlbertStraus said. “Livestock has an essential role in reversing climate change.”⁣

Did you know that #StrausFamilyCreamery’s reusable glass bottle program represents a circular packaging solution? ⁣

Bottling our organic milk and cream in reusable glass bottles is one of the many sustainable choices we make to build a better future. ⁣

Purchasing our milk in reusable glass bottles helps keep approximately 500,000 pounds of milk containers and plastic out of the landfill each year. ⁣

In 2019, Straus customers returned more than 3.2 million glass milk bottles, making our overall return rate 75%. Thank you for doing your part! ⁣

Please remember to return your rinsed milk bottles to the stores where you purchased them and receive your $2.00 refundable deposit. ⁣
