I have a Wensleydale with Cranberries... will work on others. Cabrales is on the way; as are MANY new cheeses! CHEERS!
Not all cows are dairy cows. Many of the local ones are grass-fed beef farms that serve not only the community, but are outsourced to stores like Whole Foods, who have a great demand for such wonderful fare.
The most local places I see are in Sonoma - Cowgirl Creamery, Bellwether Farms, etc. There is also Rumiano, out of Crescent City. Cypress Grove has the market on goats milk in town... everyone else is small and privately milking/cheese making!
I'm on the hunt, Joel; thanks for the suggestion!
I am currently earning my cheese stripes at Eureka Natural Foods as resident cheesemonger, where we are engaged & active enthusiasts of cheese. I just want to correct the article on a few points: we do carry Cowgirl's Red Hawk, Fiscalini's Cheddar, Defendi's Dolce, Manchego & Benning Goat Cheese. In addition, I will be picking up Tete de Moine & Zamarano this week; thanks for the suggestions. I am in the process of updating all of our random weight tags to reflect not only pack dates, but also relevant use by dates. If there is any question, I can advise you. And, as always, call or come find me for any special requests! May all your cheese wishes come true! "Cheesus"
