We aren’t the only ones who invest a lot of energy and care into the products that line our shelves. Our local farmer suppliers have long traditions of producing high-quality goods that shoppers can enjoy.
One such partner is California Cloverleaf Farms, one of the Burroughs family farms. Cloverleaf is one of many family-run California dairies providing certified organic milk for Safeway. Cloverleaf is committed to sustainable, organic family farming, and it has spent the past decade transitioning all of its land to organic.
