We drove along the coast to visit the Point Reyes shop. This location is where Cowgirl Creamery began. The building was once a working hay barn and was lovingly restored to the cheese room and kitchen it is today. The kitchen, or the "Cowgirl Cantina", features a mac and cheese made with Red Hawk and Wagon Wheel, and believe me, this dish alone is worth the trip! We met with Michael for a private tour and tasting. I was surprised to learn what makes Red Hawk so exceptional.
Additionally, the Cowgirl Creamery has a very close relationship with their dairy farmers as well as those that sell their products. They pride themselves in being persnickety and pay careful attention to detail and quality. You can certainly taste it in their cheeses. I consider myself very lucky to be able to share their cheese with you!
