Business: Mystery Bay Farm, Marrowstone Island, WA
Owners: Rachael Van Laanen and Scott Brinton
About: "Mystery Bay Farm is a small scale, family farm operating on five acres on Marrowstone Island. We produce farmstead, goat milk cheeses and yogurt for general sale. Farmstead means we make all of our cheeses and yogurt using only the milk of our animals. In addition to cheese and yogurt, we offer educational farm tours, cheese making classes, farm dinners, local handmade pottery. We offer tours and classes as a way to educate and integrate the community into the farm. As career educators, we feel that there is a need to inform the greater public about where our food comes from and to provide a genuine experience for the growing number of people interested in artisan, non-industrial food production and farming."
