Vella Cheese of California
An Artisan cheese manufacturer since 1931, Vella Cheese is a US Champion Cheese Factory for aged dry Monterey Jack and many other varieties. The success of Vella Cheese lies in the personal attention each day's production is given. Quality starts in the pasture. Every cow is not the same. But, if you insist on the finest breeding of herds, the finest feeds, the greatest care in milking and transporting the top grade milk, so that you have the best possible natural raw material, you have set the stage for super cheese. We are all natural. All the milk in our cheese comes from Mertens Dairy: a local sustainably farmed Sonoma family dairy and their free range happy California cows.
We are the first solar powered business in Sonoma. We are committed to waste diversion, including recycling, composting, and furthering the sustainability of all our operations.
