Petaluma, Calif. — September 16, 2020 — Clover Sonoma, a third-generation family-owned and operated dairy, is teaming up with the San Francisco 49ers to collaborate with another iconic, beloved Bay Area brand.

And, we were excited to bring Sourdough Sam and Clo the Cow together for some laughable moments that will inevitably bring cheer to our dedicated fans.”

The partnership will include several assets on varied media platforms:

  • Some of the key campaign assets will include a Safeway Shopper program, where Clover Sonoma will be branding its holiday organic eggnog with the notable 49ers red and gold logo, including in-store marketing through the end of the year.
