Description:

“Our small, family-owned dairy farm began when Bill Straus began farming in 1941 with just 23 cows here on the beautiful shores of Tomales Bay and the Point Reyes National Seashore, 60 miles north of San Francisco. Ellen Straus, his wife, read the book Silent Spring by Rachel Carson in the early 1960s and began our family’s strong commitment to environmental sustainability. We have been farming here for more than 65 years. We still consider our most important responsibility to be stewardship of the land.”
