The Fantello Farmstead Creamery joined Pike Place Market in 2022, bringing their award-winning cheeses and cultured butter to the Market. Fantello Farmstead Creamery began in 1918 in Enumclaw and continues to use the same farm-to-table methods.
The Fantellos make cheese that is truly handmade every step of the way, from milking the cows into cans and hand dumping the milk into the vats, pail by pail, to aging in on wooden boards to make cheese as pure as possible. They don’t use milk pumps or outsource milk from other farmers to make their cheese. Farmer Paul says that by being involved in every step, they have complete control over the final product.
