Today’s guest: Founded in 2013 by John and Lauren Bowne, Gypsy Cheese Co. crafts cheeses entirely by hand in small batches, using the best milk from local dairies. Their goal is to create enjoyable and unique cheese in rural harmony with the green pastures of the North Bay. Based in Valley Ford, Gypsy Cheese Co. taps into the area’s century-old heritage of dairy excellence and the naturally foggy, salty air to create cheese with unique Sonoma County terrior. Gypsy Cheese Co. offers a variety of cheese, including the Caravan, a local version of the traditional feta cheese, and the award-winning Gypsy Rose raw goat cheese.
