In the spring of 2009 we began processing our own organic dairy products. When you purchase our Certified Organic artisan dairy products, you not only get a healthful, premium product that you can feel good about serving to your family, you also support a system of agriculture that is environmentally sound.
You can find McClelland's Dairy quality organic products on store shelves in California as well as at local farmer's markets. Our flagship product is a European style organic butter.
McClelland's Dairy Artisan Organic Butter This European-style butter is made with organic milk produced on the
coastal hills of Sonoma County. We start with the best quality
organic milk that is cold-separated to ensure the quality of the
butterfat in the cream. The cream is then pasteurized in a
small vat to produce a rich, robust flavor. The butter is tumble
churned in small batches to achieve the perfect texture, then sea salt from the Sea of Brittany in France is added.
It revives the old world values we started our dairy with in 1938.
"From She to Thee" a slogan started by Bob McClelland for his hand
delivered milk - is now available once again with hand-packed
butter. It delivers all the quality you would expect from the
McClelland Dairy heritage. This artisan organic butter is available
by visiting local farmer's markets
or your local stores throughout the Bay Area. Click here for information on purchasing this special reserve

FOR ORGANIC DAIRY FARMERS, certification requirements include very specific standards addressing the introduction of new animals to a herd, veterinary practices, and housing and grazing. Even the handling of manure on an organic farm is regulated to ensure that run-off is not polluting aquifers or waterways. Organic standards also cover processing and packaging of the final product.
