Laura Chenel

Laura Chenel is the recognized “pioneer” of American goat cheese production. In the late 1970’s and early 1980’s she established the prototype that allowed numerous new goat cheese makers to flourish.

Starting with fresh goat cheese made on a small Sebastopol farm to its current home in the new state-of-the-art creamery in Sonoma County’s Carneros region, Laura Chenel has been at the forefront of America’s increasing love of goat milk cheese.

All of the milk for Laura Chenel’s cheese comes from a partnership with 16 family goat dairies in CA and the Sierra foothills.
