Sample the best Gouda that Ontario has to offer at Thunder Oak Cheese Farm, a favorite of cheese-lovers around the country and beyond. This cheese farm dates back to 1995, when the Schep family opened with the express purpose of making the Dutch yellow cheese with fresh milk from their own cows and no added preservatives. Stop by the onsite cafe for a hot drink and to sample a delightful array of their products. The farm also stocks a number of Dutch imports of Gouda; buy a selection to take home.

  • The cheese curds were so squeaky and delicious we came back to get more! They have different flavours of regular gouda cheese including dill, nettle, and smoked among others as well as mozzarella cheese. Also in their shop is a variety of baked goods, fudge, and Dutch treats. Something for everyone!
  • Great selection of gouda cheese made on site and so delicious and creamy! Tons of variety nettle, roasted red pepper, garlic, and many others. Definitely worth the short drive out to their farm also good for kids as they can see how cheese is made. Check it out
  • The cheese is fantastic. Especially the one with nettles in it. I didn't know you were supposed to eat nettles, but now I know theyre delicious.
  • Fantastic locally made Gouda cheese and other Dutch treats.
  • I had heard that they had good cheese and had checked out their flyer that told of the cheese they make. Gouda is one of my favourites, and I came home with lots of it. It is located in a beautiful area of Ontario and worth the drive to see and enjoy the food they have.
