Bill Stephenson

Lindsay Slevin

Prior to opening Twin Sisters Creamery in 2015 with her husband Jeff and becoming an artisan cheesemaker, Lindsay spent nine years as a Food Service Director for Brown and Cole Stores, where she was introduced to the wonderful world of cheese. In 2006 Lindsay had the opportunity to work for DPI Specialty Foods as an Account Executive until opening the creamery. While at DPI, Lindsay wrote the inaugural American Cheese Society certification exam and became a Certified Cheese Professional in 2012. That accomplishment and her passion for cheese, combined with Jeff’s support and manufacturing background, motivated them to pursue their dream of owning their own business and opening Twin Sisters Creamery, named after their twin daughter’s Maddy and Lexi.

Twin Sisters Creamery focuses on Raw Milk cheeses using high quality Jersey cow’s milk. We’re proud to be a part of the growing artisan cheesemaking industry in Washington State.
