Our Story

Since 1945, Alta Dena® Dairy has been nourishing families in Southern California with wholesome and delicious dairy products. We started as a small, family dairy, but we’ve grown quite a bit throughout the years. Today, we’re a farmer-owned brand of Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), a cooperative of farmer-owners committed to holding themselves to the highest standards: yours.

The Alta Dena Difference

As your trusted dairy, we hold our products to the highest standards. Our farmers pledge not to use artificial hormones.* Our milk and cream are fresh, pure & delicious, from our farms to your fridge.
*No significant difference has been shown in milk from cows treated with artificial growth hormone rbST and non-rbST treated cows.
