  • Actual Visit - August 2016 Fantastic looking farm (a little smelly but ok). I like the shop, it's surprisingly very spacious and well-appointed with decor. Staff is super helpful, and was able to take...  more »
  • Came here expecting a 30-minute diversion... left with a very memorable afternoon. Yeah, a nice gift shop for the ladies and FREE cheese samples for the gentlemen but the real treat is the HUGE variet...  more »
  • We saw an ad and as a cheese lover with Dutch heritage, we had to visit. The setting is so beautiful! We bought loads of liquorice and 2 cheeses- Cumin (my fave) and Dragons Breath (my husbands fave)....  more »
  • I had no idea this was such a large operation! Lovely big shop with lots of delicious treats and samples and where you can see the cheese making process. Then there is the "wild life park". A beautiful natural setting where you can feed and enjoy the animals and birds up close. Loved it!
  • Very clean store, love the variety that's available to buy. This is my third time up there, the last two times we took the gran kids through their animal park- it costs a small amount, very pleasant walking through the woods and seeing their animals. Which you are able to feed. This is the view from top of the farm(below).
  • I enjoyed visiting this cheese maker. They have good cheese. Very large variety. A lot of dutch imports of candies and cookies and other Dutch trinkets. There are goats on the property that can be fed by hand with purchased grains. (I did not do this, but I'm sure its great fun for kids, adults too). I was a little disappointed that there seemed to be less focus on cheese and cheese making, and more focus on tourist trap items for purchase.
  • The five stars is definitely for the farm! The walk around was absolutely fantastic, there were way more animals than expected and the setup takes you on a little journey. Cheese didn't blow me away, the truffle Gouda was the best.
  • Great place to spend a couple hours. Gift shop that sells delicious cheese made on site, fudge, and other imported treats. Upstairs they have antiques for sale. Around the end of May they bring out the animals. It's kind of like a small zoo in the woods. Very nice place.
