Tiny little house but very characteristic (soon to be torn down) that makes and does tastings for cheese which you can then buy direct from them.....the chive cheese is delicious, the people that work there are so friendly.

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

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
