Cherry Valley Dairy's Grass-fed Butter Wins Again

  • Written by Valley View Staff

Local farmstead creamery, Cherry Valley Dairy, is celebrating two big awards from the American Cheese Society National Conference for their famous grass-fed butters. Their Unsalted Cultured Butter took home second place and a third place honor was given to the Coffee Butter - made with Duvall roaster, Anchorhead Coffee beans.

The American Cheese Society Competition occurs every summer and this year attracted over two thousand cheese and dairy product entries from the US, Canada, Mexico and Columbia. Head Cheesemaker, Blain Hages followed the award ceremony online via live stream, "I'm really proud of our butters and it is such a rush to hear your name called for these prizes - even over the internet."

This is the second year in a row that these butters have taken home big prizes. The butter is cultured in the traditional European style and is known for its incredible flavor. The dairy's grass-fed Jersey cream provides signature deep-yellow color and heart healthy Omega-3s.

No access at Moss Lake Natural Area for culvert removal work, Sept. 11-29

  • Written by Valley View Staff

King County’s Moss Lake Natural  Area will  close to the  public  for  more  than two  weeks this  September as crews remove a culvert along a small stream in advance of installing a replacement bridge there next year.

The culvert removal project will block access to the majority of the trail system that winds through the natural area, which features a rare sphagnum moss bog, forested wetlands, and other habitat features.

Heavy dump truck traffic should also be expected along the Moss Lake Natural Area’s access road, and the gate to the parking lot will remain closed for the duration of the project.

Crews will reestablish public access to the site as soon as the old culvert is removed. Workers will monitor water elevations throughout the winter and into early spring to determine the proper height for a permanent bridge structure.

The 372-acre Moss Lake Natural Area is located five  miles southeast of Duvall.
