Factory and Gift Shop
What are your store hours?
Do you offer factory tours?
Our viewing windows are open during office hours from 9-5. However, it is best to come in the morning - because we make cheese during the night and by afternoon we are in cleanup mode. By that time, cheese cannot be seen from the viewing windows. If you would like a more in-depth education on cheese making, call us for an appointment with one of our knowledgeable staff.
