Humboldt Fog

Cypress Grove


An American classic, Humboldt Fog from Cypress Grove, is an ash-ripened goat cheese that is the creation of cheesemaker Mary Kheen, who in the 1970s moved to Humboldt County, California, in search of a back to land life with her young children. She acquired a few goats, and as they multiplied, she decided to make cheese with the excess milk. A trip to France and a dream inspired Humboldt Fog. The flavors of Humboldt Fog develop with age. When young, the cheese is tangy and lemony with notes of herbs and buttermilk. As it matures, flavors intensify and can become quite assertive, especially just under the rind.
