Stories From the Road

Impact Washington recently met with Twin Brook Creamery in Lynden, Healthy Pet in Ferndale, and Golden Boy Foods in Blaine.

Twin Brooks utilizes Jersey cows that produce milk with a higher percentage of milk fat and are bottled in the glass.  They are fifth-generation milk producers still on the same property in Lynden.  They pasteurize at a lower temperature over a more extended period which does not damage the milk like the ultra-pasteurizing process can.  Larry Stap is passionate about his family-owned business, and I am sold on buying Twin Brooks exclusively.

Golden Boy Foods produces almond butter and 600,000 pounds of peanut butter a week.  New flavors of almond butter in R&D: maple almond butter and brown sugar almond butter, are to be released at Costco this year.

Some of the job's perks: are samples of peanut butter, Twin Brooks strawberries & cream milk, and chocolate milk.  The cream is floating on top of the milk. Delicious!
