This multi-award winner starts off with a buttery texture and rounds into a soft delicate finish. Monterey Jack is perfect atop white bean chili, in chicken quesadillas, or stuffed mushrooms. It pairs beautifully with Pinot Noir, un-oaked Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, or Riesling. It's delicious on its own or with an American Blonde Ale.
Larry Peter, owner of Spring Hill Jersey Cheese company and Petaluma Creamery, grew up in Sebastopol, CA. Larry worked in agriculture as a young man picking prunes and raspberries. He washed milk bottles; bottle fed calves, and drove a forklift for ten years while he learned the business. He saved his money, bought run-down houses, fixed them up, and rented them out. In 1987 Larry bought a run-down dairy farm in Two Rock and brought it back to life. By 1998, he was producing nearly 500 pounds of Spring Hill Jersey Cheese that initially, he sold himself at farmer’s markets. In 2004, Larry risked it all when he bought aging Petaluma landmark - the nearly 100-year-old Petaluma Creamery to grow his brands and to support local dairy production. Larry’s dedication to the industry and the area has given new life and economic growth to local families. Over the past 20 years, Larry has held the Peter Pumpkin Patch at the farm. Every year more than 6000 kids try the Creamery's pumpkin ice cream, dig their own potatoes, milk a cow, go for a hay ride, pet baby animals and pick out the perfect pumpkin while their parents listen to live music and enjoy free cheese tasting! It’s a wonderful opportunity to build community and to teach kids where their food comes from.
