Cypress Lane Ranch

Cypress Lane Ranch became a family farm certified organic milk supplier in 2015. Tony Spaletta and his father Charles Spaletta manage the 772-acre dairy, where they milk 300 head of Holsteins. Named for the beautiful cypress-lined road winding through their organic pastures, Cypress Farm Ranch is an iconic dairy landmark along the Point Reyes-Petaluma Road and part of a greenbelt of historic farmland protected by the Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT).

The dairy’s rich family history goes back to 1933, when Eda Olivia Grossi Spaletta and Charles Leo Spaletta, the children of Swiss-Italian immigrants, bought the land and started Cypress Lane Ranch, raising their seven children on the property. Great grandson Tony Spaletta raised his children there, and today his son Jake helps on the dairy.

“We knew that in order to survive economically we needed to convert our dairy to organic. The demand was there and my Dad and I agreed it was the right thing to do. Once we made the decision to convert we knew we wanted to become one of the Straus family dairies. Straus has great products and we like their company and believe in what they stand for,” says Tony.
