Schoch Farmstead

Schoch Farmstead

Schoch Family Farmstead was started in 1944 by two brothers who emigrated from Switzerland. The dairy is located on the El Camino Real in the Salinas Valley of Monterey County, and is one of only two dairies remaining in Monterey County-- and the only dairy still producing Monterey Jack cheese. They recently became only the third certified raw dairy in California. The 2nd and 3rd generation of the Schoch family operate the dairy, producing raw milk, yoghurt and European Alpine style cheese.
Cypress Grove

Cypress Grove

Started by Mary Keehn in 1984, at a time when nearly all goat cheese was imported from France, Cypress Grove evolved the American palate from the strong-flavored French imports to the more nuanced, creamy characteristics of domestic goat cheese. Their claim to fame is Humboldt Fog®, a multi-layered soft-ripened goat cheese with a strip of vegetable ash running down the center, represents Humboldt County’s foggy coastline.
Cowgirl Creamery

Cowgirl Creamery

Founded in rural Pt. Reyes Station in 1994 by Peggy Smith and Sue Conley, both former Bay-Area chefs, Cowgirl Creamery was born out of their desire to re-invent French classics using local organic milk and small-batch production and evolved into one of the top artisanal cheesemakers in California, if not in the U.S. Their flagship, Mt. Tam, named for Mount Tamalpais in Marin County, is a 100% organic triple cream cheese with a washed rind.
Rustic Bakery

Rustic Bakery

Carol LeValley & Josh Harris started Rustic Bakery in Novato in 2005. Their simple sourdough flatbread cracker, made with organic flour, water and salt, started in their home kitchen and expanded into a business when they sold their first 50 cases to the founders of Cowgirl Creamery. Their flatbread crackers are hand made in small batches using a fermentation process that gives them a snappy texture and a delicate sourdough flavor-- and makes them the perfect accompaniment to artisanal cheese.
Jamnation

Jamnation

Started by Gillian Reynolds in 2014, Jamnation uses organic fruit from local farms within 200 miles of their San Francisco base, Fair Trade Certified sugars and spices, and no pectin to make intensely flavored jams. The inspiration for their flavors comes from Reynolds' travels to over 30 countries. Her award-winning jams are as fun and lively as their names, including "Apricot Red Handed," "A Crockwork Orange," and "Plum and Get it."
Fontana Farms

Fontana Farms

Fontana Farms, started by Frank and Sharon Fontana in 1979, is located in Ceres, in the heart of California's Central Valley. They farm their own fruit, almonds and walnuts and make fruit preserves and sauces. The Fontanas can often be found at Bay Area farmers' markets.
