GOODBYE CHEESE LOVERS!
10 YEARS OF AWARD-WINNING CHEESES • 2009-2019
Bleating Heart Cheese enjoyed a decade of cheesemaking in California.
Our last remaining cheeses were sold in 2019.
It was our immense pleasure to share our handcrafted, award-winning
"American Original" cheeses with all those who supported us.
This site is no longer being updated,
but all content about our cheeses and our history will remain here.

Our big trip in the Spring of 2011 was spending two weeks on the amazing and beautiful island of Corsica, where most of the cheese is made from sheep milk, along with some goat too (no cows there). We were just blown away by the dedication to local products in every shop and store we visited, even supermarkets, which all had completely dedicated sections for Corsican cheeses. In Corsica they have their own "brebis du Corse" or Corsican ewes, which are very similar to the Sarda sheep that inhabit Sardinia, their neighbor to the south. These sheep are much smaller than the cross-bred dairy sheep we have in the United States. This was a truly unforgettable experience!
