Farm History

Golden Glen Creamery started in 2004 by making artisan and farmstead cheese, and is currently operated by the family.  In 2006 the Creamery began making butter.  In 2011, the farm was transferred to new owners since then the farm and creamery have been growing and prospering.


When Golden Glen Creamery started in 2004, the Cheese-makers in Washington State were few and far between-maybe as many as a dozen or so.  In 2011, there were at least 43 licensed Cheese-makers in the state.  In 1967 there were over 1,400 dairies operating in Washington State, while today there are fewer than 460.
