Mt. Tam Cheese - Cowgirl Creamery

Mt. Tam Cheese - Cowgirl Creamery


This organic cheese from Cowgirl Creamery is made with pasteurized cow's milk (Straus Family Dairy) and is firm, yet buttery with a mellow, earthy flavor reminiscent of white mushrooms. It is a smooth, creamy cheese with a thick, snow-white bloomy rind, that you can eat.

Available in a 10oz wheel.


Delicious as a stand-alone cheese, makes a wonderful addition a cheese board, and melts beautifully on a sandwich.


Mt. Tam was Cowgirl Creamery's first aged, soft-ripened cheese. It is named for the majestic Mt. Tamalpais, a Northern California landmark.

Awards: 2nd Place - Original Recipe / Open Category Made From Cow's Milk - 2010 ACS competition All Cowgirl Creamery-produced cheeses are Marin Organic Certified Agricultural Products.

Cowgirl Creamery was started in 1997 by Sue Conley and Peggy Smith, who had established careers in some of San Francisco’s most famous kitchens.
