Introducing Cowgirl Creamery's newest creation - a little beauty called Devil's Gulch. This new cheese is part of a bigger creamery project to increase the number of seasonal cheeses we make. Devil's Gulch is our seasonal Winter-to-Spring winter cheese.
Made with the rich Jersey cow milk from John Taverna's dairy, the paste is similar to that of our other seasonal cheeses, St Pat and Pierce Pt. The rind is lightly dusted in sweet and spicy dried red pepper flakes grown and oven-dried by Janet Brown at All Star Organics farm.
The cheese is named for Devil's Gulch, a narrow ravine carved along the base of Mt. Barnaby, just down the road from Allstar Organic Farm. The peppers themselves are grown in Allstar's fields in Nicasio.
