Celebrate Local Legen-Dairy Producers

Raise a Glass (of Milk) to Local Dairies!

It’s no secret that Sonoma County is a world-renowned wine growing region, but it’s also home to world class dairies as well. The lush, rolling green coastal hills combined with excellent weather conditions create the perfect environment to produce high quality dairy products. This week, we’re celebrating some of our favorite local dairy producers.

There is much more to local dairies than happy cows grazing on beautiful rolling hills. Sonoma County’s dairies create some of the highest quality milk and cheese in the world, and a couple of our family-owned local producers are leaders in organic milk production, innovation and sustainability, charting the course for the future of the industry.

Over 25 years ago, Albert Straus converted his family farm to organic and founded Straus Family Creamery, the first 100% certified organic creamery in the country. These bold actions effectively created the first pasture-to-bottle infrastructure for organic milk. All their certified organic products are processed as little as possible for the best taste and culinary performance. Never ultra-pasteurized, and no preservatives, fillers, artificial ingredients, or coloring agents, ever. They also lead the way in sustainable practices, including being one of the first dairies in the world using all electric trucks at their facility.

And then we have Clover Sonoma, a locally based, third generation family operated company, which was the first dairy company to be American Humane certified. They are also a certified B-Corp, using their business as a force for good. This century-old Sonoma County brand works with 30 local family farms and donates five percent of their profits each year to worthy non-profit organizations through their Clover Cares program. Their witty billboards keep us entertained, and we see their support as a constant at community events.

Sonoma County cheesemaking has never been as robust as it is now, with many new cheesemakers taking advantage of our outstanding milk to craft their world class cheeses! Check out this week’s ad to learn more about Valley Ford, Bellwether Farms, Cowgirl Creamery and Spring Hill. These are exceptional producers, and this week, you will find them at featured pricing.

Watch for great pricing this week on some of our favorite items from Straus Family Creamery, Clover Sonoma, and Redwood Hill (goat’s milk). Check out Clover Sonoma’s new Organic Moon Milks (32 oz. Carton. $3.79) and this recipe for Blue Moon Tea Latte.

We hope you will join us this week in honoring our local cows, goats, dairies, and cheese producers at Oliver’s Market. You will be udderly happy that you did!
