Laura Chenel

Laura Chenel started a new chapter in American goat cheese through her commitment to care, quality, and community. She introduced French farmstead cheesemaking techniques to Sonoma, California in 1979. Her partnerships with chefs, like Alice Waters, helped Laura Chenel to become the original chefs' goat cheese. We continue to honor her commitment by crafting award-winning cheese, supporting family farms, and respecting the environment with our LEED Gold Certified Sustainable Creamery. Sister brand St. Benoit Creamery also calls the LEED Gold certified creamery in Sonoma home. Rooted in California's amazing food scene, St. Benoit offers pasture-raised dairy from jersey cows at a farm only 26 miles away. Naturally high in A2 protein, their yogurts and pots de crème are packed in reusable glass jars and filled with organic goodness. St. Benoit Creamery is committed to making REAL FOOD you can feel REAL GOOD about.
