Whatcom This Whey

Dairy Farm, Creamery, & Cheesemaking Tours

Saturday, June 15, 2024 | 10 AM – 4 PM

Get ready, Whatcom County! Make your whey over to learn where your food comes from and how it’s made. Hop on a wagon tour at one of our family farms, where farmers will discuss farm practices such as soil management, wildlife habitat restoration and preservation, water protection and recycling, and manure management.

Next, take a walking tour through a creamery to learn how your favorite Washington cheese, chocolate milk, and other dairy products are made and the science and skill it takes to craft them. Meet some cute cows and enjoy delicious cheese at one of our picnic spots, or bring your bikes and ride around the beautiful Whatcom countryside. We can’t wait to see you all out here, so don’t forget to mark your calendars!




Whatcom this Whey dairy tours event activities and highlights include: cows, calves, goats, guided tours, wagon tours, creamery tours, robotic technology, kids activities, picnic spots, samples, food, and local dairy products for purchase.
