OPDC is rooted in the innovative farming and dairy endeavors of the McAfee grandparents.
Since the 1950s, McAfee Farms have been leading advocates of nature-friendly farm practices.
In 1988, the family established an organic farm and by 2000, Organic Pastures Dairy Company became California’s first raw milk dairy with certified organic pasture land. The dairy is located near Fresno, California, in the heart of the fertile San Joaquin Valley, and is one of the few remaining family-owned and operated dairies in California.
At OPDC the vigor of each cow is a high priority. Our individually named cows are never given antibiotics, hormones, or GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms). Only approved naturopathic methods are used to care for the cows, and this preventative, nature-based healthcare keeps the herd healthy all year.

Made with only organic ingredients, we never heat or pasteurize our krauts so you get the full benefits of those wonderful, living probiotics. This also means lots crunch and big, tangy flavor in every mouthful. Flavor: Our “New World ” flavors like Smoked Jalapeño, Horseradish Leek, Apple Fennel, Cauliflower Curry and Ginger Beet Kraut represent California food culture at it’s best. We even make a kraut that tastes just like pickles- our Garlic Dill Pickle Kraut.
Values: We’re really proud of the fact that we source 99% of the produce that goes into our krauts within 20 miles of our facility.
Our innovative, recyclable packaging with the amazing “ferment-o-vent” allows our living krauts to breath and also reduces our carbon footprint by 2/3.
We’re committed to living kraut, healthy people and a happy planet.

Modifilan is Natural Dietary Supplement. It is a concentrated extract from the richest type of Brown Seaweed – Laminaria. Our unique nutritional product brings up high volume of all-important organic elements, found in seaweed. Patented technology of extraction takes off heavy outer fiber of Laminaria leaf, enhances minerals, vitamins and polysaccharides for easier digestion and better results.
FORTY pounds of raw seaweed are needed for production of only ONE pound
Laminaria has Organic Iodine, Alginates, and Fucoidan. Iodine feeds the Thyroid gland, which controls metabolism. Alginate is a natural absorbent. Its molecule passes via the digestive tract and binds with toxic metals that are often secreted there through the bile. Then, since our bodies cannot absorb Alginate (particularly when it is complexed with the heavy metals) it passes through and is excreted, taking the heavy metals with it. Fucoidan promotes apoptosis (self-destruction of cancer cells) and it helps to naturally eliminate harmful cells.
We recommend MODIFILAN to everyone as a prophylactic nutritional supplement. It is the best recipe of Nature for a complete and very healthy diet. Ask your fellow natural products distributor about health benefits of MODIFILAN and you will find considerable what this great product offers in variety of qualities In simple words, MODIFILAN is just a concentrated dried juice of kelp – easy to digest whole food product, rich with ALL naturally occurring minerals and vitamins of raw seaweed
