Have yourself a cheesy little Christmas!
Join us Saturday December 7, 2019 for the Third Annual Creamery Crawl.
It’s a day devoted to local, artisan cheese! Enjoy the day visiting with four local cheesemakers at three different locations in Whatcom County.
Chances are you’ve tasted the cheese from Ferndale Farmstead, makers of mozzarella, asiago, fontina, scamorza, caciotta and provolone. Ferndale Farmstead’s award winning products are used by chefs at Aslan Brewery, Pizza’zza and Ovn Pizzeria among other local restaurants. The business, with original recipes by Daniel Wavrin, has achieved fast acclaim since it was founded in 2015. Since Ferndale Farmstead does not have a public tasting room, the cheesemaker will have a table available at The Cheese Shop at Appel Farms.
Twin Sisters Creamery
Twin Sisters is known for their blue cheese, Whatcom Blue, and their creamy raw milk cheeses, Whatcom Farmhouse and Farmhouse with Peppercorn. At their 3,500-square-foot tasting room and retail shop, owners Lindsay and Jeff Slevin feature up to 80 cheeses from all over the world as well as cheese accompaniments, wine and great gift ideas.
