Pt. Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co. 'Original Blue' (Point Reyes, CA) Unpasteurized

The Giacomini family traces its roots to the mountainous terrain of northern Italy. In the early 20th century, Tobias Giacomini left Europe to settle in Northern California. A half-century later, his grandson, Bob, and Bob’s new wife, Dean, bought a farm near Tomales Bay and began raising Holstein cows and selling milk to a local creamery. Their herd grew from 150 to 500 by the mid-1990s, and the farm’s lush pastures are now certified organic. Bob and Dean had four daughters and, in 2000, the family launched the Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company, using its own milk to make its first cheese, Point Reyes Original Blue.

Made from raw milk and aged for six months, Original Blue is creamy and tangy with a medium punch of blue flavor, and a perfect balance of salt. The cheese’s rich, unique flavors are attributed to the high quality of the farm’s pastures and their proximity to the ocean. Original Blue is wonderful on a cheese plate, crumbled into a salad, or served alongside a grilled steak.
