Correia Family Dairy

Owned by Kathy and Emanuel Correia, the Correia Family Dairy joined Straus Family Creamery as a family farm certified organic milk supplier in 2010. Located in Petaluma, their land has been used for dairy since the 1900s. Today, their organic herd consists of approximately 300 Holstein milking cows that graze on 300 acres of pasture, producing award-winning, high quality organic milk.

The Correias were already using many organic and sustainable practices and share the Creamery’s commitment to sustainable farming, making conversion to organic a natural transition.

Kathy was born into the dairy business — her parents, Joe and Arminda Pinheiro, owned a dairy in Santa Rosa. Emanuel emigrated to the United States in 1974 from San Miguel in the Azores islands of Portugal. After marrying Kathy in 1982, he began his career in the dairy business working at Kathy’s parents’ dairy. In 1994, they acquired their own 120-cow herd from Louie Mazzoleni in Sebastopol, and leased the Petaluma dairy. In 2009, their long-standing dream came true when they finally purchased the dairy.
