Samish Bay Fresh Ladysmith Cheese 1/2lb

Samish Bay Fresh Ladysmith Cheese 1/2lb

Regular price $12.50 Sale

8oz cut straight from the wheel and wrapped in paper. Their signature cheese, Ladysmith, has been described as a cross between Queso Fresco and Ricotta Salata. As with our other fresh cheeses, it can be sold as soon as the day after it is made. Ladysmith was also called the “best…most addictively snackable new cheese” by the Seattle Weekly in 2009. Since then it won First Place at the 2010 American Cheese Society awards competition for the category of unripened cow’s milk cheeses.

Samish Bay Cheese is owned and operated by Suzanne and Roger Wechsler. We 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, we have a mixed herd, mostly Milking Shorthorns, some crossed with Jersey, Holstein, or Dutch Belted. Our grass-green fields of the Skagit/Samish valley are in an environment well-suited to organic farming.

All of our milk, and only our milk, is used to make our cheese, yogurt, and kefir. Samish Bay Cheese is certified organic by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.
