Giveaway: Cypress Grove Summer Cheese Prize Pack

When Mary Keehn launched Cypress Grove in Humboldt County, California, in 1983, she was a single mom with four daughters. “Every morning I’d milk about 50 goats by hand, get the girls off to school, then go make cheese,” Keehn told culture in this story from 2011. Her signature cheese, Humboldt Fog, appeared to her in a dream on a plane ride home from a trip to France to visit cheesemakers. “I saw it clearly in my dream—everything about it and exactly how to make it,” Keehn said. “And so I just went home and made it. But nobody bought it. It didn’t catch on until years later when Florence Fabricant at the New York Times wrote about it. After that Metropolitan Home pictured it next to things like Hermes scarves and great architecture as one of the 100 best things in the world!”

Keehn was a pioneer of American artisan cheesemaking. And her multi award-winning Humboldt Fog—a soft-ripened goat cheese wheel with a distinctive layer of edible vegetable ash running through the center—is trademarked as the Original American Original. But Keehn didn’t stop there. Cypress Grove’s range of cheeses now includes Truffle Tremor, a rich and earthy bloomy-rind goat wheel; Midnight Moon, a nutty and snackable aged goat cheese; Lamb Chopper, a buttery aged sheep’s milk wheel, and fresh goat cheeses in a variety of unexpected and delightful flavors.
