Q: Do you produce goat or sheep cheese? A: We only produce cows’ milk products. Q: Do you sell milk, butter, or cream? A: The only dairy products we sell are cheese, yogurt, and kefir. Q. Do you sell any low- or reduced-fat products? A: No, our cheese, yogurt, and kefir are made with whole milk. Q: Are your cows organic? A: Yes. Our cows, cheese, yogurt, and beef are all certified organic. Q: What does “organic” mean? A: Organic standards as regulated by the USDA and certified by WSDA require that animals be given 100% organic feed and prohibit the use of hormones, pesticides, or antibiotics. Q: Are your cows and pigs “free range”? A: Yes, our livestock are given plenty of access to outdoor pastures. During winter times, when the fields are too wet, are they kept off the pastures. Q. Where does the name of your signature cheese, Ladysmith, come from? A: We are located in the Bow-Edison area of Skagit Valley in Northwest Washington. Years ago, there was a small community in between Bow and Edison known as Ladysmith. A couple of our other cheeses are named for local landmarks and areas: Port Edison and our cheddar: Mont Blanchard. Q: Do you have nutritional information available for your cheeses? A: No. Q: Do you offer tours or cheesemaking classes at your farm? A: Self-guided tours are available daily during daylight hours. The best times to come to see activity in the cheese room are between 10 AM and 2 PM. Please check in with Charley when you arrive or ask at the sales counter in our shop. Guided tours for groups can be arranged by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Do you ship your cheeses?
A: We can ship our cheese, but we must take into consideration several factors including weather (particularly temperatures over 70° f), as well as the type of cheese and quantity being ordered. The best way to accurately assess whether a shipment can be made and what the cost would be of a particular shipment is to call or email us with your zip code and items of interest and we can help you with your request.
