Our Milk

Stornetta Ranch - Jersey CowsOur Milk – Dairy farming began for our family over 100 years ago by Antone Stornetta, who emigrated to the U.S. from Switzerland. The ranch is now operated by his great-grandson Walter and his wife Donna, their son Lance and daughter-in-law Jamie. The dairy was one of the first in the state to complete the California Dairy Quality Assurance Program.

Our dairy produces only organic milk and milks three different breeds of dairy cows including Holsteins, Jerseys, and Crossbreds that graze on pristine pastureland overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Our milk is sold to Organic Valley. If you would like to buy our milk, look for the Organic Valley label at Gualala Supermarket and the Arena Market Co-op.
