An organic American Original cheese recipe, our best-selling cheese has all the lusciousness you expect from a triple cream with a unique heart that upholds its texture. Named after the iconic landmark Mount Tamalpais that rises over the San Francisco Bay in Marin County, Cowgirl Creamery’s Mt Tam cheese is produced with organic, locally sourced milk and rises above the standard for bloomy rind cheeses. Mt Tam takes you from fudgey firmness to buttery softness with flavors spanning from bright creme fraiche to complex and mushroomy, evoking North Bay’s lush green and gold pastures.

Can I order individual cheeses?
From our Cheese Shops in the Ferry Building & Point Reyes Station, yes you can.
From our Online Cheese Catalog, we aren’t able to offer individual cheeses. We do feature specific cheeses like our We Love Red Hawk or Welcome Wagon. Also, from time to time, we have online specials with several pieces of the same cheese like our popular Tam Trio. Sign up for our emails in the footer to be the first to know!
How should I store my cheeses?
As soon as you get it home, store the unopened cheese in the refrigerator for best quality. Any opened pieces can be re-wrapped in the cheese paper and sealed in the paper it comes in. You can also re-wrap the cheese in cheese paper that helps to preserve the cheese as much as possible.
If you don’t have cheese paper, use something that will keep the cheese covered so that it doesn’t dry out in the fridge. Other customers have used reusable beeswax food cloths and parchment paper. Plastic wrap can be used, but it’s better for harder cheeses than delicate soft cheese.
Can I create a custom assortment or make substitutions?
For our local fans shopping in San Francisco or visiting us in Point Reyes Station, we offer gift baskets and catering trays.
For our Online Cheese Catalog, unfortunately, we don’t have that option. But check out all of our current catalog - we’ve curated popular combinations that feature the best of Cowgirl for all kinds of cheese lovers.
