Local Cheesemakers & Creameries

The highest quality dairy comes from family farms, and we’re proud to partner with several local cheesemakers right here in the Pacific Northwest like Samish Bay Cheese, Appel Farms, and Harmony Fields. Giving their animals the very best care means you get the very best product, made in small batches boasting farmtastic flavor without antibiotics, rBST, or added hormones.

We carry the best vegan cheeses, including popular dairy-free brands like Daiya, Kite Hill, and Miyoko’s, so you can fill your fridge and indulge in as much creamy, delicious, dairy-less cheese as you please.

Everything’s Better with Cheddar

Whether you like it sharp, medium, mild, or melted, cheddar cheese is the ultimate flavor maker. Put it on a sammy, in a soup, atop a casserole, or in one of these drool-worthy dishes.
