Taste the Straus Difference

Organic Farming is Our Main Ingredient

Supporting small dairy farms for nearly 30 years, our belief in organic farming is deeply rooted in our commitment to preserving the environment for future generations. It’s not only the right thing to do; it’s the best way to craft premium dairy products.

From Pasture-Based Herds*

The cows graze on the sweet grasses of Western Marin and Sonoma Counties in Northern California at the 12 family farms (including the Straus Dairy Farm) that supply our milk. These pesticide-free organic grasses which thrive in the mild coastal climate, are rich in beta-carotene, giving our dairy products their rich and unique Straus flavor. The cows are never treated with hormones or antibiotics.

Environmental Leadership

From the methane digester that powers electric vehicles at the Straus Dairy Farm to pursuing ways to eliminate fossil fuel-based plastic packaging, we are continually seeking new ways to reduce our impact on the planet.

Collaborating With Farmers

Our mission is to help sustain family farms and revitalize rural communities. We prioritize collaborative relationships with the independent family farms with which we do business, offering stable prices and predictability in a volatile organic milk market.
