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. 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.
