Founders Sue Conley and Peggy Smith both started their careers working in fine dining restaurants, so it’s no surprise their award-winning cheeses are some of the best in the country.
Two decades, dozens of awards, two creameries, four retail stores and two thousand tons of cheese later, it’s safe to say they’ve earned their 10-gallon hats.
Cowgirl Creamery cheeses are sold to over 500 stores, independent cheese shops, farmers markets and restaurants, and nationally through Whole Foods Markets. And true to their community ethos, Tomales Bay Foods continues to support and promote artisan cheesemaking, offering over 200 cheeses from all over California, America and Europe through their website and retail locations.
What started as a desire to make cheese and help cheesemakers thrive has grown into something beyond our wildest dreams. Our toughest job now is trying to keep up with all the great artisan cheeses emerging, particularly in Northern California, Vermont and Wisconsin. We couldn’t be happier.
