Mary Keehn got started on the goat cheese trail in the 1970s when she decided to raise Alpine goats as a source of healthful milk for her children. Not too long after, Mary started receiving awards for her herd and became recognized as an expert in the field. Blessed with an excess of milk from fifty goats, Mary started making cheese in 1983.
Situated where the giant redwoods meet the Pacific Ocean in the rugged northernmost reaches of Humboldt County, California, Cypress Grove Creamery gets unique inspiration from the salt-etched voluminous fog that coolly rolls in nearly every day.
Truffle Tremor is the newest creation from Cypress Grove. The flavor of truffle comes through in this velvety goat milk cheese. The earthiness of the truffles combined with a creamery texture makes for another distinctive cheese from Cypress Grove.
