Moonstone is a pasteurized, natural rind, hard cow’s milk cheese. Made from a 50/50 blend of Jersey and Holstein milk from a local dairy, it has a rich, buttery and creamy flavor with a bit of zip at the end. Moonstone has a naturally pale yellow paste and a rind developed with our natural cave flora. The flavor is reminiscent of stone, burnt caramel and coffee grounds.

Refrigerate Cheese Upon Arrival
As a friendly reminder, cheese is perishable. We do our best to pack each shipment with care and amble ice packs, but please try to refrigerate your cheese as soon as your shipment is delivered. Cheese should be stored in a standard refrigerator or alternative cool storage. Cheese can be served at room temperature for optimum flavor and texture, but then put back in the fridge for storage.
Heat Advisory (Summer Months)
During the summer months, extremely hot temperatures are causing delays in shipping and issues with our products, something we are unable to control. Here are recommendations for hot zone shipping when ordering our cheese online.
Option 1: Order your cheese online but ask us to hold shipping until these temps cool down a bit. Just remember that some cheeses like Chevre, Big Sur and Rocky Butte are seasonal and won't be available if put on hold past their season.
Option 2: Although we offer free ground shipping with UPS on orders over $50 in CA, AZ, NV, OR, WA, UT and ID, we suggest paying for overnight/air shipping to ensure the quality of your order. We understand it's expensive, but we are not able to fully guarantee your order won't arrive melty with the normal 2-3 day ground shipping in these high heats.
If you have other ideas or suggestions, please let us know. Thanks for your continued support!
