For the Love of Goats
Bohemian Creamery

By Val Larsen

Just over ten years ago Lisa Gottreich followed her heart and with inspiration and love for her goats, founded Bohemian Creamery. She worked hard to develop amazing recipes for her cheese, made from goat, sheep, cow and water buffalo milk. All but one of the varietals offered are of her own formulation.

Lisa Gottreich founded Bohemian CreameryWhile living and working in Italy a number of years ago, Lisa learned the ancient art of cheesemaking. Her taste buds were forever spoiled with the beauty, complexity and flavors of the region. This would become a strong influence in the creation of her cheeses.

Bohemian Creamery, on Occidental Road just north of Hwy 116, has an old-world Italian charm that embraces the urge to step away from a fast-paced, high tech world that bombards our senses daily. The shop is open from Friday to Sunday, but their cheese can also be enjoyed at the Sonoma Wine shop & La Bodega in Sebastopol, and in other specialty cheese sections in locally-owned groceries. 

If you really want to learn about the art of cheesemaking, take the tour on a Saturday or a Sunday and Lisa will inspire you with her love and knowledge of the craft. For more information on the tour, send Lisa an email:

As our beautiful Sonoma County spring approaches, embrace a slower pace at the Bohemian Creamery where the cheese is memorable, delectable and unique.
