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 Straus Family Dairy. (8 oz)

The Bianchi family has owned and operated their 640 acre ranch since 1918 and began producing cheese in 2008. Estero Gold Reserve is made from raw milk and aged for about 16 months, giving the cheese a hard texture and sweet flavors of fruit that are reminiscent of Parmigiano. (8 oz)

Ewereka
Central Coast Creamery • Paso Robles, California

Located in the beautiful central coast region of California, Jones now specializes in aged cow, sheep and goat’s milk cheeses made from local, hormone-free milk.Aged for 3 months, Ewereka is a unique cheddar made entirely of sheep's milk. The paste offers a distinct sweetness up front, followed by a pleasant creamy finish with just the right amount of cheddary tang. The name "Ewereka" is a play on the California state motto, the perfect tribute to this original California cheese. (8 oz)

As Humboldt Fog ages, its subtle tanginess grows more pronounced and a runny edge of thick and delicious ooze begins to develop under the rind and drift to the center of the cheese. (16 oz)
