About Berkeley Farms.
Established in 1910 by young French immigrant John Sabatte, Berkeley Farms is celebrating 100 years of providing top quality dairy to the San Francisco Bay Area. California’s oldest continuous milk processor, Berkeley Farms began as a small milk delivery business in South Berkeley that grew to a 40-man operation with 28 routes by 1940. With the decline of home delivery in the 50’s and 60’s, Berkeley Farms reinvented themselves and transitioned to wholesale and institutional sales to capture the growing grocery store business. They distinguished themselves over the past century with their commitment to the community, their dairy farmers, their products and their employees. Their state-of-the-art facility in Hayward is the largest rBST-free milk plant on the West Coast, and the American Tasting Institute awarded Berkeley Farms the American Taste Gold Medal and Best of Show Medal for their whole, low-fat and non-fat milk categories.
