Farmers Market Feature: Spring Hill Cheese Company
In the simple yet sophisticated town of Sonoma, Rachel Peter grew up attending various Farmers Markets with her grandparents. They sold potatoes, vegetables, and most importantly, cheese. “The environment at those markets created a sense of community involvement,” Rachel explained of her first Farmers Market experiences. She also says that she developed a “delight in organic foods and responsibility to share and educate others on the importance that natural food plays in living a happy and healthy lifestyle.” Rachel carried these values with her as her appreciation for the cultivation and sharing of “Sonoma culture” developed and eventually grew into living her dream of providing a “Slice of Sonoma” right here in San Diego.
Established in 1998, the Spring Hill Cheese Company is located in Sonoma County where their herd of 400 Jersey Cows provides the milk for the growing line of farmstead cheeses. They can be found every Sunday at the Hillcrest Farmers Market. Rachel can be found handing out samples of their many delicious products. Spring Hill Cheese has developed a broad line of cheeses including Quark, Ricotta, and a range of Cheddars and Jacks. A few of their most popular cheeses are the Jersey Garlic Cheddar, Goat Sage Cheddar, and Raw White Cheddar. However, these are just three of their many, delicious options. If you want to discover more you’d better visit for yourself.
Rachel and her partner Anthony have built a passionate and devoted team of supporters that enable them to participate in 12 markets per week in the San Diego area. They truly enjoy providing delicious organic cheese and butters to local farmers markets, as well as hosting cheese tastings, private events and delivering to restaurants. Rachel and her team pride themselves on connecting with their customers to educate them on “organic living, community spirit, and deliver an exclusive, artisan product with a smile.”
Visit Rachel and Spring Hill Cheese every Sunday at the Hillcrest Farmers Market!
