Meet the Cheesemakers: Thurston County
Come learn about cheese, cheesemakers, and cheesemaking in Washington state! This fun and delicious educational seminar will be led by Courtney Johnson, Executive Director of the Washington State Cheesemakers Association. Dr. Johnson will talk about the wide world of Washington cheese, explain how cheese is made, and lead a panel discussion featuring three local cheesemakers. The panel will include a guided tasting of cheeses made by each of the cheesemakers. After the seminar there will be a short meet-and-greet session with the possibility to buy cheese directly from the makers.

The Cheesemakers
Lost Peacock Creamery (Olympia) is a grade-A goat dairy that is Animal Welfare Approved. Rachael and Matthew Tuller run the farm with their two small children in tow.
Mountain Lodge Farm (Eatonville) is an artisan farmstead creamery in the foothills of Mt. Rainier, with goats, delicious cheese, and farm events.
Toboton Creek Farm (Yelm) is a small, farmstead goat creamery offering a wide range of farm-grown products.

The Presenter

She is a career cheesemonger who has worked for specialty grocery stores in the greater Seattle area and now owns her own mobile cheese shop, Street Cheese.

The Host
Washington State Cheesemakers Association (WASCA) is a 501(c)(6) non-profit founded in 2015. WASCA supports Washington state's cheesemakers through education, collaboration, and networking. Membership is open to licensed cheesemakers, businesses, and cheese enthusiasts.
