Crafted with pure, simple ingredients, and minimally processed. No gums, thickeners, stabilizers, artificial ingredients, or coloring agents are ever used in our half & half.
Our organic half & half begins with premium organic milk and cream, blended to achieve 11% butterfat content.
Many half & half products are ultra-pasteurized to increase shelf life, which involves “cooking” the milk at high temperature (at or above 280°F for at least two seconds). These more heavily processed items forfeit flavor and nutritional integrity in their quest for a longer shelf life.
Never ultra-pasteurized. Straus Family Creamery Organic Half & Half is pasteurized at 170°F for 18 seconds and lightly homogenized to emulsify the milk and cream (to minimize separation). This process destroys harmful bacteria while still preserving the authentic flavor of the milk and cream.

Pasteurized Organic Milk and Organic Cream.
Our certified organic dairy products are Non-GMO Project Verified, certified kosher, and gluten free. The cows are never treated with hormones or antibiotics. They graze on pesticide-free organic pastures during good weather and are given 100% organically grown supplemented feeds.
The cows graze on sweet grasses in the unique, coastal climate of Western Marin and Sonoma Counties in Northern California. This grazing environment is reflected in the rich and unique flavor of Straus’ organic milk, organic cream, and all of our organic dairy products.
