Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co.

The family’s journey started in 1938 when Grandfather Waldo Giacomini moved his family to Point Reyes, where Bob, his son, was raised. In 1959 with his new bride Dean, Bob purchased the dairy to sell milk to the local creamery.  He had a dream to make cheese.

In the late 90s, their four daughters (Karen, Diana,  Lynn and Jill) came back to the farm (leaving various business careers behind). In 2000 they began producing the first wheels of  Original Blue, California’s only classic style blue cheese, later adding additional cheeses.
