Farmstead Sheep Cheese

Saint Rose - Sheep, Aged 2.5-4 months, 3.5 lb. wheel.
This is a farmstead sheep cheese. Its semi-soft interior offers a nutty flavor profile with a lingering floral and citrus finish. At 2 months this cheese is delicate and still mild. As it ages out to 3+ months it becomes sharper and more complex. It is named for the city of Santa Rosa where cheese maker Joel and his wife Carleen, grew up, and were wed.  This cheese is certified humane by, the Animal Welfare Institute.

Primo Fresco - Sheep, Aged < 1 wk., pasteurized, 4-6 oz discs, non-GMO veg. rennet.
This is a farmstead, fresh sheep cheese. Its snow white interior is delicate and tangy, spreadable, with a light fluffy texture. Lightly salted it pairs well with sweet or savory. The higher butterfat and sweetness of our sheep milk elevates the common fromage blanc to luxurious indulgence. This cheese is certified humane by, the Animal Welfare Institute.

Mi-Ewe  - Aged > 3 mos, 5 lb. wheel
This is a Sheep and Cow mixed milk, natural rind cheese with a sharp and complex flavor profile. Mi, in French is short for "demi" suggesting half; half sheep and half cow milk.
 
Artisan Cow Cheese
Our cow cheeses are made with milk that we purchase from small family dairies here in Sonoma County. These relationships allow us to produce a high quality, regional product in our creamery year round and most importantly, during the 6 months of each year that we are not milking our sheep. 

Rumpel - Cow, Aged 3+ months, 5 lb. wheel.
This is an aged raw milk tomme sports a natural dry rind and offers a dense yet creamy, slightly sharp interior. This cheese is USDA Certified Organic by CCOF.

The following cheeses are not available at this time:
Peau de Pêche - Cow, Aged 2-3 months, 4 lb. wheel.
This is a washed rind cheese. Named "skin of peach" in French because its rind blushes like peach skin in colors of pink and orange. Its interior is semi-soft with a silky paste. As our most "stinky" cheese, it offers a complex and assertive finish. This cheese is USDA Certified Organic by CCOF.

Tomme Fraiche - Cow, Aged 2 weeks, pasteurized, 5+ lb., wheel.
This is an elegant and mild, semi-soft cheese with an uncomplicated tang, designed to allow the quality of the milk to shine. Pairs with savory and sweet, a favorite of children, decadent melted into dishes like the classic French potato dish Aligot, and balances out a cheese platter that is heavy with the more robust and assertive cheeses. Despite its young age, the tang of this cheese cuts through and compliments full bodied wines and dark beers. This cheese is USDA Certified Organic by CCOF.

Doubloon- Cow, Aged 1 week, pasteurized, non-GMO veg. rennet. Named after the gold coins used as pirates currency. These are small, fresh crottins that have the distinct tang and spreadability of a cream cheese but a much more delicate and fluffier consistency. We offer the plain doubloon, as well as two versions sans the rind; one dusted in a spicey Harissa and another in Herbs de Provence. Crowd pleasing, attractive accompaniment to cheese platters, baguettes, melted into omelets, potato dishes and even crumbled onto salads. Made seasonally. This cheese is USDA Certified Organic by CCOF.

ORGANIC artisan COW cheese & FARMSTEAD SHEEP cheese

We hope that our effort in acquiring these third party certifications allow our customers to buy with confidence. We strive to produce high quality handmade products that are not only beautiful and delicious but more importantly reflect our commitment to our ecological values and love for our animals.


Our new creamery is a USDA Certified Organic (mixed use) cheesemaking facility. This means that the cheese that we make with Certified Organic milk and other CCOF approved ingredients can now be labeled with the word “Organic.”


Our flock of Animal Welfare Approved sheep are raised year-round on Certified Organic pastures however, we still need to certify the actual sheep and milk that they produce before we can label our sheep cheese as organic. The land, the animals and the cheesemaking facility each need to be Certified Organic by the USDA individually. Perhaps we can take on that final bureaucratic hurdle in the next few years.
