Gary and Sharon McCool have been dairy farmers for several decades in the Chehalis area; they currently have a herd of about 130 Milking Shorthorn cattle. Sharon says that Gary had always wanted to make cheese, and when they came across some cheese equipment for sale, they jumped at the chance to buy it. They've been up and running since March of this year. Sharon, the cheesemaker of the family, plans to focus on making Swiss style cheeses, both plain and flavored. Their cheese is currently available only by contacting the farm directly.
