CYPRESS GROVE

Cypress Grove began in the 1970s when Mary Keehn started acquiring Alpine goats to provide fresh milk for her daughters. Soon the herd provided an abundance of milk and in 1983 Keehn officially launched Cypress Grove Chevre fresh goat cheese. The line of cheeses expanded, including the popular Humboldt Fog. Cypress Grove continues to produce award-winning chevre, aged and soft-ripened goat cheeses of various shapes and sizes.

Point Reyes farmstead cheese company

Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company began over 100 years ago in the mountains of Italy with the Giacomini commitment to producing superior quality, farmstead dairy products. Today the Giacomini family continue the family tradition with an assortment of cheeses, including their flagship Point Reyes Original Blue™. The secret to Original Blue™ lies in the unique combination of Grade A raw milk from a closed herd of Holstein cows that graze on certified organic, green hills overlooking Tomales Bay, coastal fog and salty Pacific breezes.

When you take a bite of Beehive Cheese, it melts like butter in your mouth.
