Mt. Townsend Creamery aims to bring new life to dairy by creating wonderful cheese. From the beginning, we have prioritized using high-quality milk. Today Mt. Townsend’s cheeses are handcrafted from the milk of a single herd of 250 cows that live and graze on a family-owned farm, in Sequim, whose owners have been raising dairy cows for generations.
