Make the Cow! Make the Cheese!
Now here’s something I’ve been craving to accomplish for some time now. That whole job factor just seems to get getting with regards to a random Wednesday tour. Go figure. If however you just can swing it, make certain to have a look at Cowgirl Creamery’s Petaluma tour personally in Sonoma County – sure to become wonderful time as you grow lower and dirty while using Queens of Cheese and i’ll be so jealous you are capable of going. I’ve always wondered once they placed on awesome vintage cowgirl boots when designing cheese. It really seems right.
Cowgirl Creamery started in 1997 in Pt. Reyes, California – two gals getting a imagine making hands-crafted, eco responsible, get-in-my-belly-now cheese. They just opened up up a Petaluma creamery location a year ago (Pt. Reyes location remains open too. Petaluma is wholesale only tours). If you haven’t had the chance yet to check their Mt. Tam Triple Cream, get to one of the locations or retailers STAT to change your appearance at curds and whey protein protein. The most popular Cowgirl moment? Red Hawk cheese coated in pistachios and offered by ultra 70 levels. Melt. In. Your. Mouth.

Incorporated while using brought tour can be a cheese making demonstration and tasting within the finish (the most popular part of course right later on you are able to possess a SAMPLER bag home together with you!) The tour costs $30 and reservations ought to be created ahead of time.
Insider tip: Cowgirl Creamery in Sonoma is now offering an even more intensive tour, referred to as ‘Milk to Cheese’ tour. Somewhat pricier and longer, this is fantastic for the cheese aficianado within your existence. Or me. I’ll go. Seriously. You understand you need to capture me…
