About Clover Sonoma

forefront of the dairy industry with their full line of conventional and organic dairy products. The Petaluma-based company in California’s beautiful Sonoma County has always held themselves to higher industry standards and is a dairy with many firsts. Clover was the first dairy in the United States to become American Humane Certified for the humane treatment of their animals, the first to switch to a 100% plant based, renewable carton and the first milk brand to launch a post-consumer recycled (PCR) gallon milk jug, made with 30% recycled plastic. In addition, Clover holds their partnership of family-owned dairy farms to a higher standard with its own unique Clover Promise of Excellence — a set of regulations to ensure the highest level of animal welfare, product quality, and sustainability measures are followed. 

Clover is also known for their involvement in the community, giving back at least 5% of annual profits through Clover Cares and most notably their infamous mascot, Clo the Cow, whose witty puns and billboards have been delighting Northern California for over 50 years! With a history of ‘do-gooding’ built into their DNA, Clover was proud to become a Certified B Corporation® in 2016 – meaning that we use business as a force for good by putting people and planet alongside profit.
