Kurt Timmermeister, owner and cheesemaker at Kurtwood Farms, takes us on the journey of Dinah’s Cheese. Timmermeister carefully handcrafts each round of Dinah’s Cheese, a beautiful, grassy, farmstead cheese that can be found in restaurants and markets throughout Seattle and as far away as New York City.

“If I had planned this farm from the outset, it might have looked different, perhaps more deliberate. As it happened, the circuitous route of development gave this project a more ‘organic’ style of growth. Through successes and failures the farm took shape and now reflects my interests and skills, the nature of this soil and the climate here.”
