Straus Family Creamery

Image of two bottles of milk from Straus Family CreameryStraus Family Creamery is a local icon and at the forefront of sustainable farming. You can’t find a sweeter bottle of fresh milk or cream, and their butter is to die for. Everything Straus sells begins with certified organic milk from dairy cows that graze on green, coastal pastures at independently-owned farms, including Albert Straus’ own dairy, on the shores of Tomales Bay.

Every day, Straus Family Creamery trucks fresh organic milk, butter, yogurt, and ice cream from Jersey, Holstein, and Jersey-Holstein dairy cows a short distance from the farms to Straus Family Creamery in Marshall. There it’s transformed into products like butter, yogurt, ice cream, and sour cream and brought to our store.

About Straus
For more than 25 years, the Straus Family Creamery name has been synonymous with premium organic dairy and sustainable practices. The Straus family were trailblazers. They started farming in the 1940s with a commitment to land stewardship, and in the 1970s switched to organic production. The family was also instrumental in founding MALT, the Marin Agricultural Land Trust.

What I’ve tried to do is create a sustainable organic farming model that is good for the earth, the soil, the animals, and the people working on these farms, and helps revitalize rural communities.
—Albert Straus

Cow Methane Fuels the Straus Dairy Farm
Renewable energy is one of the focuses of the Straus Faimly Creamery’s sustainable model. At the dairy farm, the methane digester captures methane (a greenhouse gas) from the cows’ manure and transforms it into electricity. Operating since 2004, the methane digester provides enough renewable energy to power the entire dairy farm, and charge Albert Straus’ electric car and other farm vehicles!
