We visited Gallo today. It was hot. Animals housed in dirty smelly iron sheds. Calves scoured...unhappy on rubber mats. Other animals outside hot and laying in full sun. No shade. Cruel and disgusting.

Cheese and Chocolate heaven. Great dart outlet. Was packed to the rafters with customers and what a variety of cheeses with free samples available on request. Unfortunate smell from the adjoining animal nursery as you enter the shop.

Gallo is a great dairy to visit, where you can try the cheeses. They have a cafe with a selection of food and drinks. I had a small cheese platter which was great, a lot bigger than I expected.
