Around Marin County September 2010

  • After over a year of development, Cowgirl Creamery has officially released Wagon Wheel, its first aged cheese. Made with Straus organic milk, in 25-pound wheels, it’s a firm cheese aged for three months. With its nutty, milky flavor, it is a great cheese for the table.
