I visited several years ago and dreamed of coming back. I have never had cheese like this before. The Jalapeño and the Habanero are outstanding. Extra creamy and soft with amazing flavor. If you ask them to seal the cheese for you it can travel home on a plane. No matter how much I buy I always wish I had... More

In the middle of the farm land of Skagit Valley Washington is an amazing cheese factory actually a cheese farm. Multiple types of cheeses to taste from all ages. A must attraction if you love cheese.

We discovered the small Samish Bay Cheese tasting room by accident while driving by a few years ago, and we now return whenever we are camping at Bayview State Park. My wife enjoys mild cheeses, and their fresh Ladysmith is her absolute favourite! I prefer stronger cheeses, and their aged gouda, cheddar, and montasio are all excellent. We've also tried... More

They have a rally good organic white cheese that they call Ladysmith that you can get fresh (good - sort of quest fresco like), mixed with various... More

Always very friendly and willing to let you try anything they sell. Our favorite is fresh Ladysmith and Queso Fresco. Cheese isn't cheap but it is very good!

We were driving past and saw the sign for cheese tasting so decided to stop and are so glad we did. The fresh Ladysmith cheese was delicious. They had several varieties available, and also gouda and cheddar. YUM!!!

We drove up, waited a minute for another group to leave the tiny tasting shop, and went in and enjoyed a taste of about 5 different cheeses. One of them was their signature fresh cheese that had come out of the cow that morning!!! Like a cross between a ricotta and a mozzarella. We purchased a pound of that and... More

Sammish Bay is a very small local cheese maker with quality products. The prices were reasonable, and the cheeses were excellent. The love they put into it shows. It is a 30 minute stopover with no tours available, but this keeps the prices low and the charm high.

What a great find! Was extremely impressed with the organic home grown quality of this farm's products. Call ahead to see what is in stock because it is in high demand. Very very good stuff! Local owned and cared for, as you will witness when you visit. Nice people! Sample it all and prepare to take home as much as... More

I stop here every chance I get, the cheese selection is great. The cheese is delicious and my biggest problem is deciding what to take home. If you're around Bow or Chukanut Drive, don't miss this place.
