Petaluma, CA. March 7, 2015 – Clover Stornetta Farms, a leading brand in the dairy industry, is excited to launch a new line of premium ice cream made from fresh organic Clover milk and cream. With 12 delicious “Cloture” flavors to choose from, these finely crafted ice creams will debut in April with an exclusive 6 month placement with Whole Foods Market and select independent retailers.  “Giving Whole Foods Market an exclusive, along with our independent stores, serves our mission to support businesses with like-minded philosophies.” says Clover President & CEO Marcus Benedetti.  “Craft ice cream is booming.
