FIVE GENERATIONS OF
DAIRY FARMING FAMILIES
Where the redwoods meet the sea in northern California’s Humboldt and Del Norte Counties, we, Blake and Stephanie Alexandre and our five children have poured our combined generations of dairy know-how into our regenerative organic farms. We are strong proponents of holistic organic farm practices, nutritional education and environmental stewardship.
“The special thing about our farm is green grass and living soil. We have a growing season that lasts twelve months out of the year, which is really unique. Our animals truly are eating more grass than anyone else’s animals in the country and it’s because of our setting here in this environment.”Blake Alexandre
THE HISTORY OF
THE ALEXANDRE FAMILY
We started dairying in 1988 in southern California where Stephanie grew up, but Blake knew he wanted to get back to his beloved pastures in northern California. When the opportunity arose in 1992 to buy an existing operation in Del Norte County, just two hours north of the Alexandre home farm in Ferndale, we seized it. We converted our dairy to organics in the late 90’s; taking our love of farming back to its roots to a hundred years ago. When it comes to grazing cows, we are not new to it. We are 5th generation grass farmers on our grazing dairy in Humboldt County. Knowing that organic production was the way of our grandfathers, this was a new/old way to farm.
Today, we operate four grass-based organic dairies with crossbred milk cows on irrigated pastures, also grow a majority of our own hay on organic cropland in Modoc County.
With five kids growing up across the street from the dairy learning to drive tractors at age six, they quickly learned the way of the land. With acres of pastures for their playground, all of the kids grew up involved in day-to-day activities on the farm – each with different, bright passions for agriculture. We treasure the opportunity for our kids to help run the farms alongside us in the future.
We care about our kids, cows, critters, the community, the land, the water, and you, our customers.
