Bellwether Farm is located in Sonoma County, California. Family owned and operated since 1986, the founder and farm owner, Cindy Callahan, takes care of the sheep, her son Liam is the primary cheesemaker, and her daughter-in-law Diana runs the business. The family visited cheese makers throughout Europe to refine their technique and to learn more about how milk, climate and equipment affect flavor. Their traditional and time-tested method results in high quality cheeses that have won national awards. Although Bellwether Farms is not certified organic, their animals are never treated with hormones and their pastures are free of herbicides and artificial fertilizers. Not only are they dedicated to sustainable practices, but they are committed to serving the community with 1% of all sales going towards organizations that provide hunger relief and food education.
