A Visit With the Ladies of Cowgirl Creamery Maker Tour | The Kitchn

I met Peggy and Sue recently at CheeseCon – delightful ladies. The Kitchn recently posted this extensive piece and gallery on their Cowgirl Creamery.

On a sunny Thursday morning I got in my car and headed out to the quiet back roads of Petaluma, California. I was on my way to talk to some gals about cheese. Not just any gals, but Peggy Smith and Sue Conley, the well-respected owners of Cowgirl Creamery. You may have heard of Cowgirl Creamery before. Maybe you’ve slathered their popular Mt. Tam cheese onto crackers, or hidden the last nub of Red Hawk somewhere deep in the fridge so your husband couldn’t find it. (Or is that just me?) If not, you should. Their cheese is pure, rich, and worthy of a happy dance.


Peggy and Sue are somewhat legendary in the cheese making world. So much so that my cheese-loving self was nervous to meet them. That’s right, I had a touch of total cheese-star-struckedness! (If that’s not a thing, it should be.) It turns out these ladies are as kind and humble as their cheese is good. We sat down together and they took the time to answer my questions (even the silly ones) and shared their story with me. I even learned a thing or twelve about cheese.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
