Quality

Milk that is cleaner, tastes better, and lasts longer.

We think that raising the bar begins with demanding integrity— in our farming practices, the treatment of our animals and the quality of our products. Integrity is at the heart of everything we do. So much so that we measure the quality of our farms and products against our own rigorous standards that far exceed industry regulations – we do this through our Clover Promise of Excellence.

The Clover Promise of Excellence, formerly known as the North Coast Excellence program, was established in 1994 and is a set of criteria each of our family farms must adhere to in the areas of animal welfare, environmental stewardship, and milk quality.

1 Cows not treated with the gowth hormone rBST
2 Farms adhere to the high standards of USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project
3 Cows cared for under American Humane Certified animal welfare standards
4 Daily and weekly testing of milk to ensure low bacteria counts, 3-6x lower than state and federal standards
5 Farms strive to make annual environmental improvements to their land

As part of our Clover Promise of Excellence, our milk is tested to ensure that bacteria counts are 3-6 times lower than state and federal standards. Low numbers of bacteria cells and somatic cells indicate that the cows are healthy and free from infection, the udders were properly cleaned before milking, and the milking equipment is being properly cleaned as well. This ensures that our milk has that signature: fresh, clean Clover flavor that we all enjoy.

Our parents were right, milk is essential for growing bodies. Real milk makes for strong bones, balances blood pressure, and helps maintain a healthy weight.
What Customers are saying
quotesClover Milk is soooo good. It tastes like the milk I drank as a kid (I'm 70 years old so you know this goes back a long time). Clean, fresh and no additives. Thank you so much for having the integrity in your production process that is needed for our children's growth and well-being.quotes
