1993 - Further Expansion

By the mid 1990’s, Chenel’s company was selling more than two million pounds of cheese a year. Her products’ popularity continued to grow incredibly. In 1993, she was ready for expansion into a larger, improved facility, located at the old Clover Stornetta dairy building in Sonoma. She started to introduce her cheeses to retailers through specific formats, such as Chabis, a pillow-shaped fresh goat cheese.
Her business now at a more professional stage, combined with the new facility, allowed Laura to reconnect with her passion of having her own goat herd.
