Watch Artisan Cheesemaking

We make cheese five days a week so feel free to stop by to watch the step-by-step process of making cheese through our viewing windows. The best times are early in the day at the beginning of the week. It’s a special treat to come on days that we are making Squeaky Cheese! Call ahead for days and times.

Cheese Tasting

We have a special selection each day of cheeses to taste as well as cheese accompaniments to try. Our cheese selection runs the gamut of flavors and cultural influences, there’s something for everyone!

Gift Shop

Need a gift for someone special?  Share your love of cheese with your friends and family. You can choose from a selection of handpicked gourmet foods, gifts, books, and toys.  Do you like to support small businesses? Check out our local section!

Getting Hungry?

Our cafe is open from 11 am to 6 pm. The menu is modest in order to spotlight local, high-quality ingredients. We focus on our classic grilled cheese and tomato soup but add variety by featuring a different gourmet sandwich selection each week.

Outdoor Dining

We have some gorgeous days throughout the year, even when it’s chilly out we can enjoy moments of sunshine. You can take advantage of these beautiful days by enjoying a picnic by the pond or a quiet lunch under the awning. Take your time and have a little fun by playing a game of chess or checkers at our wine tables.

Critter Corner

A farm outing would not be complete without a visit to our farm animals.  Goats run to greet you year-round and cows come to visit during the summer.

Dairy Drive-Thru

Need something in a hurry?  Did you know that you can pick up your cheese without getting out of your car? 

We are at your service! Check out our variety of cheeses available.
