In the Summer of 2010 the Estrella Family Creamery (a family run creamery in Montesano, Washington that produces some world-class and highly beloved cheese) had all their product seized by the FDA, essentially in an attempt to put them out of business. See here and here for some perspective and further information.
This site has been set up to aid the Estrella family (they are personal friends of mine), especially by setting up a fund for their economic support. We have set up an account to which you can donate directly to the family. Please donate generously, read up on what’s gone on, and spread the word so that together we can help the Estrellas get back to making the finest of artisan cheeses.
