Did you know dairy farming dates back to the mid-1800’s in California? Immigrants from all over the world staked their claim in the Golden State and continued their family farming traditions. Today, California dairy farms are still 99% family-owned, with many being multi-generational. That’s why Mollie Stone’s Markets is proud to carry an array of dairy products made with Real California Milk – including our own Mollie Stone’s Vitamin D Milk in this recipe.

California strawberries have a similar story. As part of the larger agricultural boom happening alongside the Gold Rush, many families choose to grow strawberries – perfect for California’s coastal climate and a crop that could be grown year-round. Pick up an extra pack of California Grown strawberries today for all your summer snacking, outdoor entertaining, and everything in-between.
