Reggie Jones has worked in the dairy industry for 25 years. He started 1991 working in a lab for a cheese company. From there, he gained experience in all aspects of the dairy industry, from whey refining to bacteria culture sales.
Reggie met his wife Kellie met while attending high school in Modesto, California. They later married and raised three daughters. In 2012, after dreaming of starting their own business for many years, the family moved to Paso Robles to build their creamery. Their daughter, Alex, recently started her own brand, Shooting Star Creamery, making cheese in the same creamery.
Reggie and Kellie specialize in unique cheeses, blending different milks, and made in batches using just 500 gallons of milk at a time. All of the milk used is certified to be hormone (rBST) free.
In 2019, they opened a retail shop at the Abbott Square in Santa Cruz, where you can purchase all their cheeses and more.
