Wonderful cheese assortment

Nice variety of cheeses freshly made on site with plenty of sampling opportunities. The cheese curds are squeaky good!

My wife and I stopped by this cheese shop on the way back from Linville Falls and cutting down a Christmas tree. All their cheese is made on site. Cows on often in the field right next to the shop. They do not have a huge variety, but offer enough to please most tastes. I find it satisfying being able... More

Got there just as they opened. We had a wide range to select. Ended up picking four spreads and three cheeses. Unexpected was the preserves being sold by another person on site. We bought the blueberry. The stop was worth it. I don't know that we would have stopped if it hadn't been right on our route though.

Their cheeses, spreads and ice cream are the best. Quite a drive to get there but we'll worth it. The butter pecan ice cream is wonderful.

We've been trying for years to stop on Friday or Saturday. This year we made a special trip on Friday morning and were there when they opened! Super yummy! Everything we purchased was amazing! Must do while in town or just passing through

We couldn't pass this place by without checking out their many delicious homemade cheeses. The store is clean, the owner is friendly and helpful, and the cheeses are worth bringing back with you to your car. Yep, we did and later enjoyed our cheese and crackers at our campsite.

Family run where the milk from their farm is used to make cheeses. There are some types available for tasting and it was all great.

We were out for a drive looking for a winery and happened upon this great little place and the cheese was awesome. We bought plenty and shared with friends and family.

We stopped here on the way back to Florida (coming from Sugar Mountain). This is about as fresh as you can get. Here are some of the things i purchased here: Mild Cheddar Block - Not really all that mild, I'd call it medium, but very good Pepper Jack cheese block - Way to mild for my taste, it should... More
