Peggy Smith


Bio: Peggy Smith is co-owner and operator of Cowgirl Creamery and Tomales Bay Foods. She opened Cowgirl Creamery in 1997 in Pt. Reyes Station, California, where she began to make and distribute cheese to the San Francisco Bay Area. The business has grown to include a small production facility and distribution warehouse in Petaluma, Ca. as well as a retail shop in San Francisco and Washington DC.

Sue Conley, (Peggy’s business partner,) and Peggy served as co-chairs of the ACS Conference which was held in San Francisco in 2004. Peggy has also served as a panelist for several conferences, regarding topics such as the challenges of small retail operations and distribution networks.

Statement of Intent: If elected to serve on the Board of the ACS, I would love to involve myself with the issues of HACCP, and issues that are of interest to small cheese operations, both production and retail, in general. I appreciate your consideration to serve.
