About

The Alexandre Family Farm is a multi-generation dairy farm based in Crescent City and the first dairy farm to be certified Regenerative Organic in the United States. They adopted the regenerative certification to help define and distinguish their holistic approach. They specialize in A2/A2 milk from crossbred grazing cows. Knowing that quality dairy products start with healthy pastures, the Alexandre family makes nourishing the soil their first priority. To build their compost pile and create topsoil, they accept fish waste from local fisheries and wood shavings from a Southern Oregon mill.

Certification

Certified organic by CCOF

Fun Fact

The Alexandres work with the CA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, CA Parks, the Northcoast Regional Land Trust, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service to conserve and nurture wildlife.
