Samish Bay Cheeseis owned and operated by Suzanne and Roger Wechsler. They farm about 200 acres in the northwest corner of Skagit County, Washington. On the dairy, close to Samish Bay and below Mount Blanchard and the Chuckanut Mountains, they have a mixed herd, mostly Milking Shorthorns, some crossed with Jersey, Holstein, or Dutch Belted. The grass-green fields of the Skagit/Samish valley are in an environment well-suited to organic farming.
All of their milk, and only their milk, is used to make their cheese, yogurt, and kefir. Samish Bay Cheese iscertified organicby the Washington State Department of Agriculture.
