Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog is an iconic American cheese. Named for the thick fog that rolls in along the northern California coast and into Humboldt County, California, this was the first cheese Cypress Grove founder Mary Keehn perfected after learning the true art of cheesemaking from the masters in France. One taste of the subtle tang of goat’s milk combined with the distinctive layer of vegetable ash and you will see why this cheese was the first American cheese exported to France (that is pretty amazing) and why it is still winning awards years after it’s inception.
