About This Show
Delicious Revolution is a show about food, culture, and place. We talk with people whose expertise in food comes from working with food as farmers, fishers, artists, cooks, activists, scholars, journalists, and more. They spend a large portion of their life thinking about food- what it means, how to make it, how to change the food system, how it ties together societies. We will bring you in-depth conversations with some of the brilliant people that inspire the ways we think about food.

6 days ago
Albert Straus is the founder and CEO of Straus Family Creamery and an advocate for organic dairy production, environmental stewardship, and family farms. He grew up on his family’s dairy farm on Tomales Bay, near Point Reyes National Park. He took over management of the farm in the 1970s, and when he founded the creamery in 1994, it was the first 100% certified organic creamery. His business has provided a model for many organic, farm-to-bottle dairy businesses around the world. Albert continues to be a leader in sustainability, with projects that include independent verification that his feed is GMO-free, a methane digester and a water reuse system. His carbon farming program is a model for the Marin Carbon Project and the California Healthy Soils Initiative. At the invitation of Vandana Shiva, he is consulting with farmers in India on organic milk production. In this episode, Albert talks with Devon about building a sustainable, organic food system and revitalizing rural communities.
