Organic Whole Milk, Cream-Top
Our Organic Whole Milk is the way it used to be, with the cream on the top.
The cream in our organic milk floats naturally to the top because it non-homogenized.
Straus Family Creamery Organic Whole Milk is pasteurized at 171°F for 18 seconds. Unlike most milk, which is ultra-pasteurized (at or above 280°F for at least two seconds), we preserve the true flavor of our cows’ diet.
The pasture grasses our cows graze on tend to be sweeter out here in Northern California’s Marin and Sonoma County Coasts. The first thing you’ll notice when you pop the top of our cream-top milk is its beautiful aroma. Milk is supposed to have an aroma and a fresh taste. Enjoy!
All of Straus Family Creamery’s certified organic milk products are Non-GMO Project Verified, certified kosher and gluten free.

Product Tips & FAQ
Here are some product-relevant nuggets of good-to-know stuff.
What’s the advantage of glass bottles?
Glass bottles have so many advantages - we don’t even know where to start. First of all, they’re reusable. On average our bottles have a return rate of 80% and get reused 6-8 times, so that’s definitely good for the environment. But glass bottles also keep your milk colder in the fridge and therefore it lasts longer. Learn mooore about glass... »
What to do with the cream-top on our milk?
Always give your bottle a good shake before each use. But if you feel like a treat you can just scoop the cream on top out, use it like butter on a piece of bread or mix it in your morning Joe. More ideas »
