Cowgirl Creamery

Founding Member

Just north of San Francisco, in the rolling hills of Marin, Cowgirl Creamery makes some of the finest cheeses in the United States. In 1997, former chefs Sue Conley and Peggy Smith channeled their culinary and environmental ideals into artisan cheesemaking by opening Cowgirl Creamery. Today, the company produces a variety of fresh, bloomy, and aged cheeses by using milk from neighboring dairies and championing their local milkshed. Two decades, dozens awards (including induction into the Guilde des Fromagers), two creameries and two retails stores later, Cowgirl Creamery continues to help pioneer the American artisan cheese movement.
