The California Cheese Experience - Farm Tour & Tasting
Sun, October 23, 2016, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM PDT
Join the California Artisan Cheese Guild for a very special, exclusive afternoon on the farm showcasing a selection of our award-winning California cheesemakers in celebration of American Cheese Month.
Start your afternoon with a strolling farm tour of the scenic Giacomini Dairy, home of Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese. You'll meet the cows in their closed Holstein herd and learn about the history of the family, the farm, and agriculture in the region.
Following the farm tour, you'll enjoy an intimate, focused cheese tasting full of the rich history and stories behind each as told by the cheesemakers and owners themselves. You'll meet the founders and artisans behind some of California's most esteemed creameries including Bleating Heart Cheese, Cowgirl Creamery, Marin French Cheese, Nicolau Farms, Nicasio Valley Cheese, Pennyroyal Farmstead Cheese, Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese and Tomales Farmstead Creamery. The speakers will present their cheeses and provide insight on their company's place in the American cheese renaissance.
Ticket proceeds benefit the California Artisan Cheese Guild, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting artisan cheesemakers in the state of California. Tickets are nonrefundable.
