Worth the drive for great gouda and swiss cheese. The curds are plain or flavoured and there is plenty of Dutch food stuffs and gifts to add to your basket.

I came to cheese factory expecting to see the process I had never been to a cheese factory before. It's more like a store of cheese. Having said that it was excellent cheese. Picked up a variety pack and some curds.

If you are travelling down Hwy 61 and would like some delicious cheese, then this is the spot to come. They have so many flavours of locally made Gouda cheese! I tried and loved all the flavours of the squeaky cheese curds. There is a selection of gifts and other food products that you won't find elsewhere in Thunder Bay,... More

When ever we come to Thunder Bay, part of our trip consists of visiting Thunder Oak. The store is very clean and always have a great assortment of yummy cheeses. The garlic cheese curds are good and squeaky.

The Cheese Farm is a nice place to visit. The new facility is modern, well layer out, and easy to find. It is located just outside the city limits on Hwy 61. They sell a large variety of cheeses. They have lovely gifts which are a good idea this time of year. The staff are helpful and friendly.

Locally produced Gouda cheese. No preservatives. No colouring! Nice option for a day trip from Thunder Bay. Cheese curds are the best either plain or garlic flavoured. Other flavours include nettle, dill, cumin, smoked, fenugreek and more. Vacuum sealing for travellers.

We are lucky enough to live in the Slate River Valley and so a trip to the Cheese farm is only a five minute drive for us...but it still doesn't happen as often as it should and is always a delight. It is hard to do justice in words to how great their products are....and of course we all have... More

The variety of flavors have people coming back for more. We normally buy 3 flavors when we visit. They have samples so you know what you are buying.
