We exclusively source unsalted sweet cream butter from our local Straus Family Creamery. The Straus cows are pastured and grass-fed year round enjoying the Mediterranean micro climate of Marin and Sonoma county which provides a constant high level of moisture. The climate, soil and terrain contribute to the nutrient-dense pasture that Straus cows thrive on. Sweet coastal grasses provide a diverse diet for the cows including native herb and wildflower species like Purple Needlegrass and Cow Clover. Today, cattle grazing is considered an essential tool to keep non-native flora under control and ensure the future of the California coastal ecosystem.
