Berkeley Farms

About Berkeley Farms

Berkeley Farms has grown to become Northern California’s most popular dairy brand. For the last 100 years, we’ve been dedicated to making superior-quality dairy products for California’s families.


This dedication is exemplified in the 1998 opening of our milk processing plant in Hayward, which replaced our 50 year old Emeryville facility.

    This new facility fulfills a public commitment by Berkeley Farms to maintain its headquarters and milk processing plant in the Bay Area.

    Berkeley Farms is owned by Dean Foods, a Fortune 500 company and a leader in the dairy foods category.



    Berkeley Farms Promise

    As California's oldest continuous milk processor, we pledge to continue our commitment to provide customers with the highest quality products and services. The foundation of this pledge comes from the two pillars of pride and respect.

    Delivering the finest products

    We take pride in our ability to consistently deliver the finest products through our family farms and our advanced husbandry.

    Respect for our customers and employees

    We respect our customers and their desires for a healthy, nutritious product and their concerns for the environment. We shall always place their needs first and strive to develop innovative ways to respond to them.

    We respect our employees and recognize that no company can achieve greatness without its most important resource: the people who work for Berkeley Farms. We promise to have open communications with them and to provide opportunities for self-expression and growth.

    Standard of Excellence

    We pledge to make excellence the standard by which we judge our achievements.
