Flathead Lake Cheese

Down at the base of Polson Bay, you’ll find a bright yellow, two story building with a 140 tube solar array crowning a copper roof; the home of Flathead Lake Cheese. Husband and wife team, Joe and Wendi Arnold, did the majority of the building themselves and became operational in March of 2012. Creating a solar thermal based pasteurization process is just one of the unique features of the facility. Working with local dairies, we craft cheeses, 275 gallons at a time, making several types of aged Goudas as well as fresh curds and feta. Along with our weekly presence at the Farmer’s Market, you can come and visit our walk up window, open Monday through Saturday – 9 to 5, and sample our cheeses. If we’re not working on cheese, we’d love to show you around the Creamery. There’s always something going on – visit our website or Facebook page to find out what we’re up to.  In addition, Wendi’s mother sells beautiful jewelry.
