Straus Family Creamery



The Straus Family Creamery converted their dairy to organic in 1993 and became the first certified organic dairy west of the Mississippi. This organic farm is not open to the public, but they do have tours that are open to the public. The tours, organized by MALT (Marin Agricultural Land Trust), are usually held once a month from Spring through Fall. Straus Family Creamery is a small, family-owned dairy farm that makes great tasting organic milk, organic cream, organic butter, organic yogurt, organic ice cream and organic cheese. They do not homogenize their milk and they do not add unnecessary ingredients to their products. They strive to provide the freshest and purest dairy products. In addition to having their products certified as organic, they are dedicated to farmland protection and environmental issues. They are even turning their cow manure into electricity with their methane digester. And the owner, Albert Straus, has a couple of electric cars which are powered with the electricity made from their methane digester. To go on a tour, you can contact MALT at 415-663-1158 or visit their web site at and click on Hikes and Programs.
