When Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company was founded in 2000, we already had the most important part. Our dairy farm has always been known for making the freshest, highest quality milk. Our family’s herd of Holsteins were all raised from birth right on the property, giving us complete quality control from start to finish. Our first creamery was, and still is, right next in the milking parlor. In 2018, to fulfill the increasing demand for our award-winning products, we proudly opened a second production facility in the nearby town of Petaluma. Original Blue, our raw milk cheese, continues to be made on the farm in Point Reyes. Our pasteurized cheeses, Toma, Bay Blue and Gouda, are handcrafted in Petaluma, where we source milk from neighbors who share our sustainable farming philosophies and match our highest standards for milk quality.
