Great new building with a good gift shop (family's Dutch, so there's a LOT of interesting Dutch sweets and spices - including interesting hot sauces from former colonies). All the cheeses are good, but I'm addicted to the garlic cheese curds - eat them like chips.

I make several trips to Thunder Oak Cheese Farm during the year. The staff is always friendly, and the cheese is fabulous! They have several flavours to choose from and you can always sample a flavour before you buy. The have wonderful licorice candies in several varieties that I can never resist. When we travel to southern Ontario we always... More

Beautiful new building with large gift shop and café make this attraction a must-see. Now close to Highway 61 and an easy drive south of Thunder Bay toward the Minnesota border. The cheese has won rave reviews from around the world but the gift shop offers more, including chocolate treats from a nearby maker and a selection of unusual black... More

A local family who makes many varieties of gouda cheese and other imported food items like Maple syrup etc. I recommend the Smoked, Jalapeno and Roasted Red Pepper varieties of their Gouda, but it's all really good cheese.

Many different varieties on offer. Looks like they just opened a new retail area. Prices were very good for artisanal cheese! Going back tomorrow!

Locally made Gouda cheese in many varieties. They used to have goats you could feed, too. There's a little shop with Dutch imports and free samples of the cheese. They also have cheese curds! Closed on Sunday.

I have never seen so many varieties of gouda cheese and all manufactured on site. It was hard to choose which ones to purchase.

Okay, so full disclosure, my parents live over on the next concession, and have for almost 25 years and took me here about ten years ago for the first time. Since then we try to stop in every time we're in town to buy as much cheese as we can fit in our luggage. The owners worked very hard to... More

I would strongly advise against going to Thunder Oak Cheese Farm if you are not able to access the cheese for life.....as it will ruin your expectations around what cheese should be. I'm not sure what else I can offer for a comment. Thunder Oak Cheese is simply the best.

This establishment has built a new store front and in the summer along with picking up some of their great cheese you can buy coffee and tasty treats. It's a lovely drive and the staff are really great Lots of free samples, if you have never tasted Gouda, this will be a wonderful experience.
