We’re in the Cheese!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Lum Farm is now offering an assortment of cheese using the milk from our goats. We currently have Chevre (plain and herbed) and Feta. Tomme will be ready in the fall. Our cheese will continue to display the Myers Creamery label, though all production is happening here at our farm. Huge thanks to Jenny Myers for mentoring us in this new adventure! 

Making cheese on the farm is a group effort. The goats are milked twice a day, using a milking machine (and an occasional call for hand-milking). 

Here Polly models our milking machine in action.
Margot gets going on the milking while Frenchie has breakfast.

And then there’s the pasteurizer… a very important member of the Lum Farm cheese operation!

Amy poses with the Pastuerizer. It needs a name! Any suggestions?

We had to pass inspection in order to sell our cheese, which included a written test. Once we were confident we passed, we celebrated with tea and carrot cake…. (equal parts cake and Chevre frosting, of course!).

You can pre-order our cheese HERE for contactless pick-up Monday through Saturday. It will be for sale every Saturday from 10am – 2pm at the Orcas Island Farmer Market. Or, come to the farm stand on Friday or Saturday, 3pm-6pm (note new abbreviated hours)

Myers Creamery cheese will also be sold at various Island locations, including a number of restaurants.

A lot of love goes into this cheese, and we think it shows! We can’t wait for you to try it!

Lucy makes sure each goat feels appreciated.
