Farm History

Alexandre Family Farm, a multi-generation dairy farm based in Crescent City and member of the Regenerative Organic Alliance, has adopted the regenerative brand to help define and distinguish their holistic approach. The Alexandres transitioned to organic in the late 1990s to add more value to their dairy products and keep their farm resilient in the face of climate change. They specialize in old-fashioned A2/A2 milk from crossbred grazing cows, making nourishing the soil their first priority because quality dairy products start with healthy pastures. They opened their farm to local fisheries and a mill in Southern Oregon who contribute fish waste and wood shavings to their compost pile, creating top soil and more organic matter.

Certification

Certified organic by CCOF

Fun Fact

The Alexandres work with the California Fish and Wildlife Service, California State Parks, the North Coast Regional Land Trust, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service to conserve and nurture wildlife such as Aleutian Canada geese, bald eagles, elk, and various bird species.
