  • This was a fun stop. There is a gift shop on one side of the street, and the factory on the other side where you can view cheese being made. The gift shop carries everything from the obvious...  more »
  • I visited with my young family probably 30 years ago and it was a very small operation. Wow has it ever changed! They weren't making cheese the day we visited but there was a video to sit and watch...  more »
  • Great family friendly stop, a short distance from Boone, NC, area ski resorts and the Parkway. The shop has free samples of squeaky cheese, and sticks a verity of fresh made cheese and butter products. Along with fudge, ice cream and a selection of local wines. As for the free factory tour, it is just a large window into the factory with a narrated video describing the process. But kids will love watching the process. If you want more, the town had a few antique stores, restaurants and is very walkable at just a few blocks.
  • Wow! Got to see cheese being made, across the street! Then got to shop in the store with loads of varieties of cheese to choose from. You could even get the crackers or homemade bread to go with it so you could get the makings for a super picnic. All kinds of snacks, decorative items, stuff to make! You name it. If it was cheese related (or not), they probably had it. The staff was very helpful, friendly and welcoming. Yes! I'm going back! I know there was lots more I missed as all the ladies in our group began to talk about the things they found or bought. Did I forget to mention.......cheese curds! I found ....cheese curds! Love 'em! Got me a stash, too!
