Albert Straus launched the brand in 1994 with a deep commitment to supporting a dairy farming system that is both environmentally friendly and economically viable. He envisioned a system that would help family farms thrive and support a revitalization of the surrounding rural communities. Straus believes sustainable organic farming practices are imperative to ensure the health of farming for generations to come and to sustain a thriving relationship among farms, food, people, and the earth.
Today, Straus has collaborative relationships with the nine independently-owned, certified organic dairy family farms that supply the Creamery with premium organic milk.
Every bottle of Straus milk comes in a renewable bottle costing two dollars with the purchase of Straus milk. If the bottle is returned to participating stores, namely Bevy Produce, then the bottle deposit fee is returned.
