About Clover Sonoma

For over 100 years, Clover has supported ideas that promote a healthy, conscious, sustainable way of life forward for their family of farms, animals and communities. Clover is a third-generation family-owned and operated dairy company whose core pillars are quality, support of animal welfare, sustainable business practices, and giving back to the communities they reach.

The Petaluma-based company in California’s beautiful Sonoma County was the first dairy in the United States to become American Humane Certified and hold its partnership of family-owned dairy farms to a higher standard by developing its own unique Clover Promise of Excellence program. Clover is proud to bring clean, rBST-free and delicious dairy products direct from their farms to consumers.

B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance and Clover has the highest standards in the dairy industry. We pride ourselves on elevating dairy to new heights and our passionate support of animal welfare, sustainable business practice, and local community are the hallmarks of our business. This is truly not new for Clover, but rather woven into the fabric of the way we’ve naturally been doing business for decades. Because we strive for greatness, we are excited to become part of a thoughtful collective on the forefront of doing good!

The Change We Seek®

Clover Sonoma’s brand mission is to use their best knowledge to produce quality dairy that honors their care for family farms, animals, the environment and communities they serve.

The change Clover seeks can be found in their brand manifesto:

"We see every day as a new opportunity to celebrate goodness. We believe goodness is the result of caring for the things we love. We believe in the care and humane treatment of animals, in protecting the beautiful land we get to live on and we believe in supporting the family farmers who produce the milk that goes into our dairy products. We believe cows don’t like growth hormones. Neither do we. We believe what we put into our milk is as important as what we leave out. So, we say no to the bad stuff because we believe in milk as it should be: clean, pure and packed with the vitamins, minerals and proteins for a healthy family. This is how we have done things for three generations and we plan to continue doing it this way for generations to come. Fueled by the hard work and knowledge of our past we continuously challenge ourselves to craft delicious dairy that does more than taste good, it makes us feel taken care of. This is milk you can trust. Milk you can share generously with those you love."
