We are so lucky to have the incredible Sharon Jones working alongside us for a decade! She worked on the farm with the goats & sheep for many years then hopped over to the creamery a few years ago. Her integrity, warmth, humor and passion for food made sustainably has been a stabilizing factor for us! She doesn’t believe in cutting corners and is adamant that the animals, people and land must be cared for on the highest level. We look forward to her bringing the soul & heart to the farm for another decade! ♥️ @jones_san -

This R&D batch of organic, cultured butter is about 25 years in the making! When Hadley was a girl her favorite story was The King’s Breakfast by A.A. Milne. -
“The King asked
The Queen, and
The Queen asked
The Dairymaid:
“Could we have some butter for
The Royal slice of bread?”
The Queen asked
The Dairymaid,
The Dairymaid
Said, “Certainly,
I’ll go and tell
The cow
Now
Before she goes to bed.” -

Hadley has been finding her way to make her own “King’s butter” ever since and she has done it! From working on a Vermont farm, to joining the Toluma & TFC Team in 2014 and many small batches in her home to now her first successful batch in the new churn! Shortly, the churn will move from the farm to our new business in SF, @dailydriversf! Hadley will be making weekly batches for the bagels and for folks to buy. -

The soft ripened remnants of our 4 farmers markets this weekend. Thank you to all of you who regularly shop at farmers markets! It truly helps many farmers and food producers obtain financial sustainability. -

We often make trips to Point Reyes Station to deliver cheese to @palacemarket or for meetings @malt_ag. It’s a 16 mile drive along Tomales Bay which is 15 miles long. We think it’s the best drive in the world! -

A favorite aspect of cheesemaking is visiting a restaurant and tasting the cheese transformed!! We are in awe at the creative chefs such as Nico @cheznicosf in SF! On the bar menu is a Wild Mushroom Waffle & Atika cheese! It was to die for! We paired it with an incredible cocktail (Root & Holler) -rye/orgeat/root beer/allspice dram/lemon/nutmeg. Checkout Andrea’s & Nico’s new digs in Jackson SQ! -

The creamery is celebrating its 5th year!! What a better way to celebrate than trying out a new cheese!! Every since @jenny_mae_m started over a year ago we have been dreaming of making a sheep & goat feta! Jenny made this feta beta 1 with 80% sheep & 20% goat! Stay tuned for the results! Maybe we will have some at our farmers markets to try soon! -
