Great to be back after my sojourn in the sun! This cheesemaker got up to many dairy adventures while in Marin and Sonoma counties last week. At one point, meeting holsteins by the ocean, water buffalo, acrobatic baby goats, and tiny vocal lambs – all in one day.

Nothing like taking some deep breaths and being inspired by dairy and wine country (whom I think us cheesemakers have a lot to learn from). I’m so grateful for the team back here on the farm who could make it happen. Pictured below is my old pal Emily Gunther (of Zone 7) pitching in, and Vince flipping some Toma they made together. Teamwork indeed.
What is in the case?
Brie: Young batches of regular size and mini wheels too. With limited availability per the usual winter milk supply.
Herdsman: Wheels from October and early November. Nice wheels with creamy farmhouse flavor. Baskets return (some with ash through the middle) for those that prefer those! Raw Milk.
Havilah: Wonderful August and Sept 2014 batches. Grass, pineapple, hints of hazelnut and fudge, with a really great texture. Raw Milk.
Lawrenceville Jack Our usual creamy grass-fed, mac n cheese buddy. Summer wheels.
Toma: Notes of peanut, cream, grass, and a wonderful lasting funk. Smooth, semi-soft, buttery texture with a lovely mixed rind. Raw Milk. Aged about 90 days.
Full Nettle Jack: Spicy oregano and lemon notes shining through from the nettles. Spring and summer wheels. Raw Milk
Trilby: It’s Baaack! Our local whiskey soused friend is currently available in .50 and 1 lb rounds. Like Toma, if Toma was blended with a fat knob of butter, snuck in the candy store on the way from school, and ate a fistful of pop rocks. Pasteurized.
But wait, that’s not all! (with apologies to Ron Popeil).
