Organic Vanilla Ice Cream, Organic Dutch Chocolate Ice Cream
Using only organic ingredients and no gums or artificial colorings, Straus Family Creamery's artisan ice cream harkens back to the old-fashioned ice cream of the past. Fresh cream and milk (from cows that graze the rolling hills of Northern California) come together with sugar and egg yolk, to make a super-premium ice cream containing 17% butterfat.
In 1941, William Straus founded a dairy with 23 cows named after friends and relatives. In 1994, his son, Albert Straus transitioned the dairy to organic--making it the first organic dairy west of the Mississippi--and opened Straus Family Creamery. He did so to keep his family's farm in agriculture and continue to protect the land through sustainable farming practices. Straus Family Creamery makes a full line of dairy products with milk from his family's farm and from three other local family farms.
Straus Family Creamery strives consistently to provide the highest quality, best-tasting organic milk, yogurt, butter, ice cream, and sour cream made with minimal processing and wholesome ingredients. Straus Family Creamery makes business decisions considering environmental and ecological priorities, which support the philosophy of sustainable, organic family farming, for the health and well-being of the company, its farmers, employees and the community at large. 16oz, Reg. $4.39
