Farmstead Sheep Cheese
Saint Rose - Sheep, Aged 3-6 months, 4 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.

Mi-Ewe  - Sheep/Cow, Aged > 5 mos, 4 lb. wheel
The semi-soft interior paste has a creamy texture and boasts a robust, meaty flavor profile. The double entendre name Mi-Ewe is pronounced “me-you.” Mi, French for “demi” suggests half; half sheep and half cow milk. This mixed milk cheese combines the Weirauch’s farmstead sheep milk with cow milk purchased from a small, Petaluma organic Jersey cow dairy.  This cheese celebrates the high quality milk produced in Sonoma County.

Primo Fresco - Sheep, Aged < 1 wk., 4-8 oz crottins or discs
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. This cheese is produced seasonally; April-August.

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.

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 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” ... not all of our cheese are Certified Organic.

Our flock of (humane certified) 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.
