Mt Tam | Cowgirl Creamery | Petaluma, CA
Cultured Butter • Fresh Pasture • Mushrooms
An organic American original, our most popular cheese has all the lusciousness you expect from a triple cream, with a unique core that upholds its texture as it ripens. Think of it as Brie’s quirky Californian cousin, made with local, organic cow's milk from Northern California. (8 oz, Pasteurized Cow's Milk & Cream, Microbial Rennet, Suitable for Vegetarians)
Hop Along | Cowgirl Creamery | Petaluma, CA
Brioche • Roasted Nuts • Yogurt
A snackable organic cheese under the influence of hard cider, Hop Along is crafted into 5 lb wheels in our Petaluma creamery. After 45 days of aging, this washed rind cheese develops aromas of apple and brioche and a silky, semi-firm interior. Hop Along is a versatile and approachable option for both cheese novices and experts and easily pairs with a variety of snacks (cured meats, preserved and fresh fruits, nuts) and beverages (kombucha & hard cider). (6 oz, Pasteurized Cow's Milk, Traditional Rennet, Non-Vegetarian)
Devil's Gulch | Cowgirl Creamery | Petaluma, CA
Red Pepper • Bright Chili • Fresh Cream
Our Devil's Gulch cheese is ready to party. Made with organic, locally-sourced milk, Devil’s Gulch is named after the narrow ravine carved along the base of Mt. Barnabe in West Marin. Devil’s Gulch gets a fiery kick from vibrant and warming pepper flakes that beautifully contrast with the buttery notes of the cheese. (7 oz, Pasteurized Cow's Milk, Microbial Rennet, Suitable for Vegetarians)

Prices will not be included on the packing slip or inside of the package. Receipts will be sent to the email you entered during checkout.
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.
