Mt. Tam’s funky cousin showcases the best of Point Reyes Station, Cowgirl’s Creamery’s birthplace and the only place where this unique cheese can be made.
The pride of Point Reyes Station is named for the majestic local red-tailed Hawk that soars over the Marin Headlands, Red Hawk is a small-batch production organic washed rind triple cream made with single source organic milk from West Marin (Bivalve Dairy). Each piece is delicately washed with a simple brine for four weeks, developing a glistening sunset-hued rind.
Red Hawk is for the bold, conveying the character of coastal Northern California and our original creamery. Beyond its rough and rowdy aroma, this cheese has a rich and meaty flavor with balanced notes of cured meats, wild sage, and a kiss of ocean air. This special cheese is made exclusively in our original Point Reyes Station creamery to capture the terroir.
