Mystery Bay Farm

Our Story

Mystery Bay Farm is a small scale, family farm operating on five acres on Marrowstone Island. We have been a WSDA certified Grade A Dairy since the spring of 2009. 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 (mugs and cheese plates) and organic T-shirts and sweatshirts - all with our Mystery Bay Farm logo.

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.

We came to farming via ecology. Our interest in trying to create a truly sustainable farming system grows from observation of natural systems from which the word 'sustainable: resilient, adaptable, evolving and thus stable', is derived. We believe that farming can be done in an ecologically, economically and socially responsible manner.
