The respected Petaluma Creamery, was established in 1913 by a group of dairy farmers. It has spanned many blocks over the west side of downtown Petaluma for decades, reminding current residents and visitors of the town’s defining agricultural roots. It has seen different times, owners and farmers. Though one thing has remained constant; the love and support it provides to the people and the town.

Many say the landmark creamery wouldn’t exist without current owner and dairy rancher, Larry Peter. In 2004, Larry risked it all when he bought the aging Petaluma Creamery - the nearly 100-year-old business - to grow his brands and support local dairy production. Larry’s primary goals are dedicated to supporting the farming industry with reputable practices, increasing local economic growth to families in Sonoma and Marin counties and producing one of a kind, delicious products.
