About Garden Variety Cheese/Monkeyflower Ranch:
Garden Variety Cheese is a small farmstead cheese business based in Northern Monterey County on 40 acre Monkeyflower Ranch. To ensure the health and well-being of the animals and the high quality of the milk and cheese from Garden Variety Cheese, the 100 milking ewes here at Monkeyflower Ranch are fed on fresh pasture, alfalfa hay and organic brewers grain from Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing and organic corn from Modesto Milling. Each ewe is named after a garden flower and treated with love and respect. We also raise Gloucester Old Spot pigs on the whey from the dairy, spent grain and organic produce from local farms as well as a flock of heritage breed laying hens.
