About Bleating Heart Cheese
Bleating Heart Cheese began in 2009 with a mission to produce unique, handcrafted “American Original” cheeses. The inspiration came shortly after founder Seana Doughty quit her desk job to go work at a neighborhood cheese shop, Venissimo, in Del Mar, CA. Finding herself thoroughly smitten by the science and art of cheese, especially sheep milk cheese, Seana started down the road to becoming a cheesemaker and never looked back. Relocating to the lush Sonoma-Marin cheese region north of San Francisco, Seana made the first batch of Bleating Heart cheese in June 2009. Not long after starting Bleating Heart as a one-woman operation, Seana's husband, Dave Dalton, became fully immersed in the business as well. Leaving behind careers in academic research administration, the husband & wife duo now lead all aspects of Bleating Heart together. Seana and Dave wear many hats, working both on and in the business with help from their small crew of awesome cheese loving employees, all faithfully following the Bleating Heart mantra: making seriously good cheeses without taking ourselves too seriously.
