Alexandre Family Farm wants to show that regenerative organic can be done at scale here in the U.S.—and that too with dairy. “Cows are not the cause of climate change. It’s the way we’ve farmed. But we’re here to show you that it can be done right,” says Blake Alexandre cofounder of the California-based family operation.
With 4200 cows in their dairy that graze on over 4000 organic acres of pasture in Humboldt and Del Norte counties, Blake and his wife, Stephanie, are fifth-generation farmers who want to build a vertically-integrated supply chain in milk, and are one of the few farm brands available on milk shelves nationally.
As one of the first farms to test out and help develop the new Regenerative Organic Alliance certification (ROC), Blake explains that they’ve been able to provide feedback on what this regenerative model can look like, particularly for farmers who have livestock.
