Featured Farm Details
Appel Farms started with a young man’s dream to be a dairy farmer. That dream brought him from his home and family in Holland to a bright future in the US. He established his dream farm in 1967 in Whatcom County and later began making cheese for friends and family. His hobby of cheesemaking blossomed and grew into the business it is today. Now two of his sons, with the help of their wives and children, carry on the farm and cheesemaking tradition.
