WHEN WE STARTED, THE IDEA THAT SOME OF OUR LOCAL DAIRIES MIGHT SOMEDAY MAKE THEIR OWN CHEESE ON THE FARM WAS A FAR-OFF DREAM.
We couldn’t imagine that twenty years later our American cheesemakers would produce cheeses rivaling the best to be found in Europe or that the number of dairies making cheese in our Northern California region would climb from a half a dozen in 1995 to over thirty currently.

WE HAVE AN OPEN DIALOGUE WITH OUR PRODUCER PARTNERS,
ALLOWING FOR HONEST FEEDBACK AND QUALITY CONTROL.
In most cases, we purchase directly from the cheesemakers and speak with them on a weekly basis, so that we can best represent their cheeses. We also regularly taste their cheeses and are able to talk about seasonal differences in flavor.
In addition, our Library of Cheese is a handy, up-to-date resource for our customers. Every week we email our cheesemonger picks, which will help you with ideas regarding your cheese purchasing decisions.
