  • "Delicious cheeses"? Can't believe I read that! We ordered a cheese platter. According to the literature there are awarding winning cheeses on sale at this dairy - there certainly didn't seem to be any on the platter we received. What we got was a heap of dried out, tasteless, rubbery stuff passed off as cheese. Not one of the cheeses on the platter had any merits. We came away feeling like we had eaten a bucket of tasteless fat, though we ended up leaving most of it on the platter. The presentation was abysmal, they seemed to think that cutting the cheese into little triangles and piling it onto a wooden board would create a pleasing effect, it looked so unappetising, and was! I would NOT recommend, very very disappointing.
  • We are new in town and a friend took my daughters and I up for a visit. The area is just beautiful and the smell would be as you would expect from a dairy farm. My eldest girl didn't mind, but my littlest held her nose. It was fairly ripe, but again, it's a farm! The customer service was excellent! Staff was courteous and attentive. They were lovely to my 4 and 5 year old girls. I ordered the burger , the kids had fish and chips, my bestie ordered the chicken parm. It was about a 40 minute wait for our food. The portion sizes were enormous. My burger was well presented, the chips crispy. It was delicious. I had a cannoli as well and it was outstanding . The girls fish and chips looked very crispy and they enjoyed it. My friend liked the chicken parm, but there was very little sauce. She said the potato wedges were too much, as it made her meal too heavy. The kids enjoyed the milkshakes, they had the banana, I had the caramel, my friend had the coffee. We both felt the milkshakes were too sweet for our adult taste. After our meal we bought some jam, chocolates and cheese.. The highlights were the kiwi jam(amazing) and the Gruyere. I loved the taste of the cracked pepper and the volcano cheese, but they both had a processed background texture I didn't enjoy. For chocolate I felt the cappuccino ones were to die for.. Overall it was a nice afternoon out, the kids had fun...we had fun. We will be going back again !!
  • We ordered the large cheese platter to share among the three of us. What you usually want with a cheese platter is a gourmet experience, a small selection of tasty and different cheeses. We received an enormous pile of dry and tasteless rubber. Almost everything about this cheese platter was wrong, from the tiny amount of fruit that came with it, to the terrible presentation – a mountain of cheese triangles – to the fact that the cheese clearly had been cut earlier in the day and had dried out. Yet the most damning thing of all was the quality of the cheese itself. A good cheese should retain some of its character despite all of this mistreatment. We were given a "Tilsit" and a "Gruyère", neither of which tasted anything like the proper versions, a minuscule amount of Camembert and some other forgettable local varieties (no blue cheese). All were bland and tasteless. I hope this place ups its game and future reviewers report happier experiences!
  • These guys have done a great job of turning a dairy farm into a tourist stop. The cheese and chocolate is amazing. They also allow you to go and say hello to the farm animals.
  • A friend was on holiday there and brought me some of your Macadamia Cheese OMG 💜 I love it Wish I could buy it here in Adelaide 😧
