Welcome to River Valley Cheese

We are artisan cheese makers. Simply put, the milk is produced locally and we make it into cheese. Our cheese is made from 100% Jersey milk, guaranteeing maximum flavor and buttery goodness in every bite. No hormones to increase production and no corn in their grain. Better for them and better for you!

The artisan part means that we make our cheese in small-scale quantities by hand with great attention to detail and lots of pride. When we say handmade, we really mean it. You won’t find any automated equipment in our cheese room.

We strongly believe in growing the centuries old craft and have been teaching cheese making since 2006 as well as making cheese for resale to our loyal customers.

Artisan Cheese Making Classes

 

Class Teaching Style

Our teaching style is based on an old learning proverb Hear & Forget, See & Remember, Do & Understand. In this spirit, our classes are focused on providing hands-on experience.

We Are Artisan Cheesemakers

We could talk about cheese til the cows come home. Just ask us and you’ll get an ear full. Some may call it braggin’, we just consider it pride. River Valley Cheese started with the simple notion of Build It & They Will Come and boy have y’all!!!

We are proud members of the Washington State Cheesemaker Association and the American Cheese Society. We have worked hard, way to hard… following our passion making cheese.
