New! Local Myers Creamery Chevre

Member-owners know the Co-op’s Meat and Cheese Manager, Galen, is dedicated to sourcing local products. The latest in our new local line-up is something customers have been clamoring for: local fresh goat cheese!

Check out a selection of artisan, hand-crafted fresh goat cheese from Myers Farm on Orcas Island. Their farmstead plain chèvre and garlic herb flavored chèvre is now available on the Co-op’s Specialty Cheese Island for a limited time: 6 oz. rounds for $7.99 each and 1 lb rounds for $19.99 each!

Myers Farms’ chèvres are made from the gently pasteurized milk of grass fed, island-grazing goats. Celebrating their 3rd anniversary, this family-owned and operated farm is a labor of love for wife-and-husband team Jenny and Bill Myers. Delicate and mild, their slightly crumbly, fresh goat cheese has a slightly tangy, bright flavor and makes a tasty topping for pizza, salad, rice, veggies, soups, and pasta.  Try some today and support your local farmers, milkers, and cheese makers!
