Dairy Products for Everyone

We’re committed to bringing our delicious, high-quality products from store shelves to consumer tables. We also have the ability to produce for business partners across retail, foodservice and bulk.

First Class Facilities

We are one of the few dairies in the Western United States manufacturing across five dairy categories under one roof: Milk, Butter, Powder, Cultured (Cottage Cheese and Sour Cream) and Ice Cream.

Our main facility is in Modesto, California, in the heart of the Central Valley. Milk is sourced locally from family-owned and operated farms that we have partnered with for the last 70 years, and are all within 50 miles of our plant.

Our Modesto plant is a high volume, high efficiency facility. The facility is SQF Edition 8.1 certified. This certification recognizes our leadership in production with the highest standards of safety and quality.

We also have a smaller, more nimble facility in Fernbridge, which is located in Humboldt County. The plant produces a variety of products, including most of our products for Humboldt Creamery, our Organic brand. We source our organic milk from 5 dairy family farms and have our own farm in Del Norte County on the Northern California coast. This plant is also SQF Edition 8.1 and USDA-Certified Organic.
