River Valley Cheese

Licensed cheese artisan Julie Steil and her husband Rob once crafted cheeses as a part-time hobby, until encouragement from those who had tasted the results prompted them to turn the delectable pastime into a full-time passion. Today, the Steils manage their own herd of goats and cows who lead pampered lives on the couple's 20-acre farm, where a diet of alfalfa, blackberry thickets, and chocolate syrup yield better-tasting milk. The Steils create different cheeses in small batches, ranging from a semihard cheese bathed in raspberry port to a raw milk tomme bathed in Naughty Nellie ale from Pike Brewery. Landing River Valley Cheese on Sunset magazine's list of the Top 100 Cultural Trends Shaping the West, Julie and Rob also share their love of fromage fashioning at hands-on cheese-making classes, where attendees can learn to create their own wheels of fresh and aged cheeses, instead of relying on the questionable quality of the cheeses peddled by door-to-door sales cows.

    “It was an outstanding experience run by a super friendly, professional and sweet family. We already booked our next class on how to make another kind of cheese. We give our best recommendation for a great couple of hours away from everything else just enjoying the best of the best. You will never buy a artificial cheese again after a class of fun.”

  • “Was Great. Hunter, our teacher was enthusiastic and very helpful in leading us through the mozzarella cheese making class.”
