A Fun Way to Explore Local Farms

A Fun Way to Explore Local Farms

If you like cheese, the farmers market is a fun place to be. At the Proctor and Olympia farmers markets, local dairy farmers sell fresh, aged and feta cheeses in all strengths and flavors, and often let you (and your kids) taste your way through all of them before making a decision. What’s even more fun is visiting the animals that make milk for the cheese. In the Chehalis area, that’s not just cows. We’re talking goats and sheep. Plus there’s the friendly herding dogs that look after them. Two such farms, Black Sheep Creamery and Blue Rose Goat Dairy, are just 15 minutes away from each other along the Interstate 5 corridor near Chehalis, a nice afternoon’s outing from Tacoma or Olympia and a great way for kids to see (and cuddle) where their food comes from.
