Meet Your Farmer: Mt. Townsend Creamery
Mt. Townsend Creamery is founded on the belief that Pacific Northwest dairy is a regional treasure. They source only the best local milk from the region to craft cheese with a sense of place. Owners Matt Day and Ryan Trail have worked to reinvigorate the dairy processing industry in the Northwest by introducing specialty cheeses made using traditional methods with a northwest flavor. It’s their goal to help rebuild the region’s dairy processing tradition while paying homage to the dairies that have allowed them to thrive.
Workers at Mt. Townsend Creamery know cheese. The small staff depends upon teamwork and versatility as cheesemaking requires constant attention. Their cheesemakers are often seen at the farmers markets selling cheese and their retailer routinely leaves the store register to help drain whey and ladle curds. They are as dedicated to quality cheesemaking as we are to delivering the best organic produce.
