Sonoma County is home to some of the world’s best dairies. The sea salt air, foggy mornings, and mild climate all help to produce great grass and healthy cows. In 1987, Larry Peter bought a neglected farm on Spring Hill road in Petaluma and began renovations. Like generations before him, the plan was simple: feed cows, milk cows, make cheese. Today certified organic Spring Hill Jersey Cheese and its sister brands, Petaluma Creamery, and now Petaluma Gold, represent the time-honored quality and traditions he learned growing up and hopes to pass on to the next generation.

Since 1913, the Creamery has been an integral part of the farming tradition in the Sonoma County. Larry Peter bought the historic landmark in 2004 in order to meet the demand for his all-natural products and to preserve the ability to processing local dairy's milk into value added products without trucking it out to the area the way it's been for more than a century. The revival of the Creamery is a real-life example of Larry's core values: staying connected to our history. It's in honor of Petaluma's rich agricultural heritage that Larry named his healthy, family-blend, conventional Cheddars, Jacks and Mozzarella cheeses: Petaluma Creamery. Our cheese is free from growth hormones and we never add waxes or fillers - all natural all the time.

Healthy, pasture raised cows provide great, nutritious cheese that is full of taste. In the farming and cheesemaking traditions that have been a part of California since the Gold Rush, Larry introduces his newest brand. Modern consumers can see at a glance where their food is coming from. He's proud to bring this 100% natural cheese out to the larger markets in the state and give people who are far removed from the farm a chance to enjoy the flavors of a simpler time.
