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 butter.

Our Products are Organic Certified:
Organic growing and processing methods for products sold in the United States are regulated by national organic standards, fully implemented since October 2002. Third-party certification of organic farms guarantees that any product that is labeled as "organic" in the United States meets or exceeds these stringent criteria:

  • No prohibited substances have been used on the land for at least three years.

  • Detailed records have been kept of the methods and materials used in production.

  • All methods and materials have been inspected annually by a third-party certifier accredited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

  • All farmers and processors have maintained written Organic Plans detailing their management practices.

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.
