Marin County California has a few good cheese making companies and one of the best is the Cowgirl Creamery based in the small coastal town of Point Reyes Station in a area of rolling hills dotted with grazing cows, the same cows that produce the milk for the creamery. It got its start in 1997 and has grown in popularity while maintaining small hands on techniques. They make around eight different varieties with many winning awards from many National competition's. My favorite is Red Hawk which is a triple cream cheese with a brine washed rind thats then aged for six weeks and very good.
