CHEESE WITH HEART
CHEESE WITH HEART
The Cowgirl Story
Cowgirl Creamery makes cheese with heart. In 1997, we started with a dream shared between two college friends and business partners, Sue Conley and Peggy Smith: To celebrate organic practices and spotlight the craftsmanship of local sustainable agriculture in Marin and Sonoma counties. Today, we’re carrying the torch of the food revolution that started in our backyard. Organic. Farm-to-Table. Delicious, award-winning cheese. It’s in our DNA. And it defines our famous creations, including the beloved triple cream Mt. Tam.
Our organic cheeses are available nationwide wherever fine cheese is sold, including restaurants, as well as our two retail/cafe locations (Point Reyes Station and San Francisco, Calif.), and our online shop.
The Cowgirl Spirit
At Cowgirl Creamery, we believe in organic dairy as a force for good. We know firsthand the power of organics and its role in sustainable agriculture to support healthy communities and delicious food. We believe that the secret ingredient to delicious cheese starts with the land. That’s why we partner with local dairies in Marin and Sonoma counties to source the organic, pasture-based, cow’s milk for everything we make.
Twenty-five years after our founding, we’re carrying the torch for the food revolution that started in our backyard and inspired our founders. We’re still using it to cultivate goodness in the people, land and communities around us.
What It Means
We uplift our communities. When we grow, we help others grow - our Cowgirl family, our community partners, and the causes we believe in.
We hold ourselves to the highest standards as cheesemakers, food safety guardians, and champions of sustainability in agriculture and business.
We blaze new trails. We’re always forging ahead, committed to always finding ways to be better.
