The Straus Family has been producing milk in Marshall (Marin County) on Northern California’s scenic North Coast for nearly eight decades. Despite Bay Area development pressures, the area remains home to a strong agricultural industry that has a strong dairy farming tradition.
Existing in an atmosphere that includes both development pressures and challenges in the dairy industry has called for new and innovative approaches to farming, and that’s just the approach taken by Albert Straus.
Straus owns Straus Family Farm in Marshall and also is founder and chief executive officer of Straus Family Creamery. Over the last two decades, he rolled out new initiatives and innovations to keep the company on the cutting edge of technology and sustainability.
