Skilled cheesemongers man the shop to help you pair your chosen cheese with other great foods, from meats to vegetables. Cowgirl Creamery has its roots in farmstead eating, sourcing from local ingredients in order to create specialty gourmet cheeses that become the star of your snack plate or mac and cheese.
