Sierra Nevada Cheese

Sierra Nevada Cheese Company was founded in 1997 by Ben Gregersen and John Dundon. Ben and John discovered they had a common interest in making  cheeses using traditional methods, while working together in the Gregersen’s Family Creamery, Foothill Home Dairy, a Sacramento Landmark for over 40 years.

At first, Ben and John brought their cheeses to local farmers markets. As demand increased, the cheese made its way into local retail stores.
