Disrupting Local Living, Investing, and Cheese

Peering through the window, San Francisco-based Mission Cheese looks like a cool cheese and wine bar, an intimate and hip place for a date or business meeting. Ask a few questions about the Bent River, Marieke Gouda, or Fleur de la Valle cheeses that you ordered as part of your Midwest Cheese Flight, and you soon discover that Mission Cheese loves the cheesemaker just as much as they love the cheeses they sell. Probably more.

Money itself offers zero value for food, water, or warmth — unless you burn it — yet we enlist every safeguarding mechanism in our arsenal to protect these flimsy sheets of paper.
