The California Cheese Map is Out!

For the first time EVER, a map shows you every open cheesemaker in California. Address, hours and tour instructions included.

Traveling Highway 99 in the Central Valley? You’ve been passing some pretty great cheese.  

Gold Country? There are small, sweet farms waiting to show you around.  

Pick up fresh mozzarella and ricotta direct from a Los Angeles creamery.  

Travel the north coast and get a grilled cheese by the crashing waves.  

Pet a goat on the Central Coast.

The San Francisco Bay Area. Well, you knew it was all there, but maybe you didn’t know the specifics.  Now you do!

Download the map online, order a free copy to be sent to you, or if you’re a tourism office or business, pick up boxes of maps to hand out. 

The farms and cheese and cheesemakers are all waiting for you.

 

Goats & Rustic Cheeses

bohemian-creamery

Lisa Gottreich’s goat cheeses at Bohemian Creamery have the rustic look that reminds you of a European back road discovery. Imperfect rinds and bold tastes. This is the newest stop on the Sonoma cheese trail.

Here you’ll find a case full of rustic cheeses made from goats (which are sitting in the pasture just behind the shop), cows, sheep and water buffalo and every combination you can imagine. You won’t find these cheeses in a store, so stock up. You’ll be offered a taste of each before requesting a wedge or two be wrapped up for the road.

Lisa has also been making a very unique whey frozen yogurt and whey sodas; light icy treats infused with a different flavor each day

The shop is just along Occidental Road outside Sebastopol amidst several wineries. Open Friday-Sunday, 10:00am-6pm.  Plan a day stopping at several Sonoma county cheesemakers by clicking here.
