San Andreas

Cindy Callahan, a nurse by training, was in her 50s when she first began raising sheep as a way to keep pasture grasses under control. She soon began milking her flock, and before long, her son Liam joined her as a cheesemaker. Today, Bellwether Farms makes an array of fresh and aged Italian-style sheep and cow's milk cheeses.

San Andreas is named for the famous, active California fault that runs past the Bellwether property. It is made in the style of a Tuscan pecorino -- smooth, creamy and mild with a refreshingly sour finish.
