A gift certificate is a great idea if you have friends living in Sonoma and you want to give them a taste treat from the store. Gift certificates can also be used with a mail order if sent in with the order. They are available in any amount, starting at $20.00. Order by mail or fax or call the store to arrange for one to be available at the counter for someone.

When ordering for an event, please let us know your date. We suggest that you request that your items be delivered at least 2 days before your party in case of delays. If for any reason shipment is held up at our end, we will notify you promptly.
Allow time when ordering. We ask that you place orders at least 2 days before expected delivery.
Open packages on receipt and check for cheese care instructions or storage advice.
We do not ship outside the continental US.

We ship on Tuesdays and Wednesdays unless other special arrangements are requested. Cheese orders can be sent to either a business or residential address. Please note that someone should be available to receive the order and take it inside for proper storage or refrigeration, so complete your delivery instructions carefully. It’s important to provide a delivery telephone number for all orders, including gifts. Without complete delivery instructions, we can not guarantee delivery.

The “Subject to Availability” Clause
Because animals are naturally cyclical breeders and grazing conditions change throughout the year, there is a seasonal nature to farmstead and other fine artisanal cheeses. Although there are ways for cheesemakers to work around the changing availability of milk, be aware that goat- and sheep’s-milk cheeses in particular may go out of stock during the winter.
In addition, expect these cheeses to taste slightly different from one order to the next. This is artisanal cheese after all.
If a cheese listed in one of our selections becomes unavailable, or is not at its peak of ripeness when your order comes in, Ditty will choose an alternative. Trust her to make a great selection for you.

Christmas & New Year Orders
Last date for placing orders is December 6th (Wednesday).
Last delivery date December 20th (Wednesday).
There will be no deliveries between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Shipment of orders begins again in the new year on January 9th (Tuesday).
Plan ahead. If you are ordering cheese to serve over the holidays, choose a selection containing firm cheeses and large enough pieces to last. Slight surface mold may occur, but it's harmless and can be trimmed off. Please ask if you’re not sure.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Checks & Money Orders. When providing credit card information, please remember to include a valid expiration date. Prices exclude shipping, which will be confirmed to you after we receive your order. All prices and conditions are subject to change.

WHOLESALE - Restaurants, Wineries, Caterers
Cheeses on our list are also available to chefs and caterers in Sonoma Valley, subject to stock on hand.
We ask for a five-pound minimum in quarter-round to whole-piece portions—but we’re somewhat flexible, so call to discuss any special needs. Standing orders and pre-orders are always welcome.
We can also suggest pairings, and Ditty is available to consult on menus and cheese plate selections.
