It's July, the month of summer picnics and backyard parties. Whether it's a beautiful cheese plate or a grilled cheese sandwich, what better way to entertain guests than with cheese! We hope you enjoy all three of these goodies from California.
Mt Tam Cowgirl Creamery – Petaluma, California As a respectful nod to the majestic beauty of Mt Tamalpais, located a few miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, Cowgirl Creamery named its signature cheese Mt Tam. Creamy and elegant, Mt Tam coats your tongue with a rich, buttery flavor that carries an earthy hint of white mushrooms. The triple-cream Mt Tam is made from unblended, organic, single-herd milk from the Straus Family Dairy.
Goldette Tomette Bleating Heart – Tomales, CA In 2009, Seana Doughty opened her own creamery, Bleating Heart, and began making sheep’s milk cheese in the cooler climate of the Northern California coast. Goldette Tommette is made from the rich raw milk of a single small herd of Jersey cows who live and graze on the rolling hills near Tomales Bay. An American Original cheese, this simple but flavorful cheese has a creamy mouth feel, an earthy aroma, a buttery tang and, as the name suggests, a golden paste. The Collection includes the full 1.25# wheel.
Bishop's Peak Central Coast Creamery – Paso Robles, California Located in the beautiful central coast region of California, Central Coast Creamery specializes in making aged cheeses from local, hormone-free milk. Named for a popular Central Coast landmark, Bishop’s Peak is a take on the famed cheeses of the European Alps. It is made from the milk of cows at the Cuyama Dairy, which has been in business for more than 60 years and is the last dairy in Santa Barbara County. The cows’ grass diet gives the cheese a yellow paste, and flavors that range from sweet to earthy.
