Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company

Well I used to live right across the levee road from Point Reyes and I happened to live there just as this cheese company was starting out. I’ve been to the farm where the cows are raised, I drank the milk and cream and ate the cheese. And it’s wonderful. The land is beautiful and the cheese embodies the land. “we believe that great cheese is made in the pastures. It’s made in the natural grasses and cool ocean breezes on our coastal, Northern California farm. It’s made by healthy, pampered and well-fed cows that we raise individually from birth. It’s made by hand, by artisan craftspeople. It’s made here, on the dairy farm our family calls home.” It really is the place, expressed in cheese. Of all the places I’ve lived, this was my favorite.

Wholesome organic spices and herbs are then combined with the butter, culminating in an extraordinary flavor experience.” Flavors like garlic-herb, cinnamon, honey, chili-lime and others all come packaged in glass jars.

Organic Valley Farms

No online ordering, but site includes a local store finder. Premium certified organic dairy products, eggs, juice, soy and meats, widely distributed (even in supermarkets). "We are the only organic brand to be solely owned and operated by organic farmers. Part of our success is due to the fact that as farmer-owners, we pay ourselves a stable, equitable and sustainable pay price. In an era of rising and falling agricultural prices, the family farmers who produce our organic milk, juice, eggs, meat, and produce can rely on a stable, living wage to stay in business in their home regions." Common practices of Organic Valley farmers include humane treatment of animals (access to the outdoors, fresh air, pure water, sunshine and exercise), rotational grazing, pasturing animals, and Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
