We are proudly and boldly continuing and preserving a 160 year old tradition.
“Before refrigeration, all milk produced was churned into butter. In 1862 Marin County provided a quarter of CA butter. Fresh milk was poured into pans and cooled. The cream was skimmed from the top, churned into butter, and salted to preserve it. Some families made their own cheese or used the skills of a cheesemaker who traveled from ranch to ranch. Since land travel was limited to horse trails and wagon roads, creeks and waterways were the major links to the San Francisco market.
The Marin County coastal towns of Bolinas and Tomales were shipping ports for agricultural products. Tons of potatoes, grains, clams and dairy products like cheese and butter were shipped from warehouses to eager markets in San Francisco.” - UC Davis Coop. Ext
