Dairy Farm, Creamery, & Cheesemaking Tours

Saturday, June 11, 2022 | 10 AM – 4 PM

 

This event has ended. Please come back for next year’s activities! 

Get ready, Whatcom County! Make your whey over to learn about where your food comes from and how it’s made. Hop on a wagon tour at one of our family farms, where farmers will discuss farm practices such as soil management, wildlife habitat restoration and preservation, water protection and recycling, manure management and what the heck an anaerobic digester is.

Next, take a walking tour through a creamery to learn about how your favorite Washington cheese, chocolate milk, kefir, and other dairy products are made and the science and skill it takes to craft them. Meet some cute cows, enjoy delicious cheese and ice cream treats at one of our picnic spots, or bring your bikes and take a ride around the beautiful Whatcom countryside. We can’t wait to see you all out here, so don’t forget to mark your calendars!
