Straus Family Creamery — an Active Part of our Local Community
One of the issues closest to our hearts is advocating for organic, wholesome foods and nutrition. Another is protecting family farms. To that end, we support organizations that work in the areas of sustainability, food and organic agriculture through donations and sponsorships. These efforts have introduced us to great friends over the years — amazing people who have started organizations and, often, whole movements. We are proud to support the following leaders who do great work in their communities and strive to effect social change.
