Not to play favorites, but the cheese that started it all holds a special place in our hearts.
Produced on our family farm since 2000, California’s classic style blue cheese is rindless, all-natural and gluten-free. The addictive flavor is bold with hints of sweet milk and a peppery finish.
  • Made from raw (non-pasteurized), rBST-free cows’ milk
  • Made with microbial (vegetarian) rennet
  • Aged 3.5 months
  • Gluten Free
  • Milky white in color with blue-green veins throughout
  • Ultra-creamy texture with medium-strong blue mold flavor
  • Sweet, fresh milk with a medium-to-strong punch of blue flavor
Original Blue is great as a stand-alone table cheese, for topping salads, melting onto burgers and steak, mixing into pasta or risotto, incorporating into scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes, and so much more.
Pair with red wine like Cabernet and Zinfandel, where the fruit forward berry flavors and a hint of spicy chocolate play nicely with the peppery finish of the cheese. Pair with malt-centric beers such as Lagunitas Brewing Company's Hairy Eyeball and Imperial Stout. Last but certainly not least, Original Blue and vintage port are outstanding together!
