  • Great family spot. Awesome cheese (award winning). The farm is super well taken care of. They have a better than most kids play area and opportunities for kids to feed the animals using animal feed you can buy at their store for R5 (2017). Great service
  • Great place to enjoy a selection of cheese and some local beer. Seating can get quite busy so bring your camping chairs or use one of the blankets available to sit on the lush grass and make use of the free wooden cheese boards and cutlery.
  • Gruyere as close to the Swiss original as you can get. Nice picnic setting for a day out in the hills.
  • I am very fond of Klein River Cheeses and enjoy my trip to the farm to stock up! Serving them with local breads tonight.
  • Picnic lunch under the trees. Can't wait to go back
