Look for the seal.
Real California
Who can use our seal?

The following is a list of California cheesemakers (and other contacts) who are authorized to use the Real California Milk® seal. The California Milk Advisory Board, an instrumentality of the California Department of Food & Agriculture, oversees seal usage as a way of telling consumers they are purchasing cheese and dairy products made with California milk from dairy farm families.

Cheeses listed here are representative, but not inclusive, as new cheeses are being produced by California cheesemakers on a regular basis. Foodservice distributor partners also produce private label cheese brands made with Real California Milk that may not carry the RCM seal and may not be represented on this list. Please send any questions to AskRealCaliforniaMilk@cmab.net.
