Although Reggie Jones began his cheese career in product development and quality control, he dreamed of being able to develop his own small-batch artisan cheeses. Located in the beautiful central coast region of California, Jones now specializes in aged cow, sheep and goat’s milk cheeses made from local, hormone-free milk. Jones believes in the rich potential of quality milk, and has a mission to introduce the American palate to flavors found in the best cheeses of Europe.

Aged for 3 months, Ewereka is a unique cheddar made entirely of sheep's milk. The paste offers a distinct sweetness up front, followed by a pleasant creamy finish with just the right amount of cheddary tang. The name "Ewereka" is a play on the California state motto, the perfect tribute to this original California cheese.
