We made the 20 minute drive out of the city for the acclaimed Thunder Oak cheese. When we arrived, it looked like a new location. The building was very clean and had a small cafe on the inside of the entrance. Other than that, it was basically a store selling cheese, crackers and cookies and other Dutch snacks and artifacts....

Nice quality of cheese. Curds were Wisconsin style but not the true buttery taste. LONG drive to get there. If you REALLY want some, pick it up in TB at the farmers market.

Would have loved to have seen cheesemaking at this shop, which I guess is offered Mon/Wed/Fri in the morning - but I called and was told this was not available in 2015 due to renovations (their website said not available in 2014, but had not been updated to reflect 2015). I'd call ahead if you planned to come during cheesemaking... More

Unfortunately, we never had the chance to watch the actual cheese factory in action, but the samples, the products, and the staff were all fabulous. It's a bit of a trek to get there but well worth the drive.

This is a small, family owned and operated cheese farm located just outside Thunder Bay. There are somewhere around 24 different cheeses available (mostly gouda with a few types of curds) at exceptionally reasonable prices. Bulk candy is also available for purchase, and there is a cafe on site. One caveat: Google Maps locates this place about 1.4k further down... More

We were biking from Thunder Bay to Minneapolis and this was one of our early rest stops. Great Cheese! So good! You can get it at the country market too!

This stop, south of Thunder Day just off route 61, is also very close to The Chocolate Cow, just one road south and a bit closer to rte 61. The shop carries an extensive array of Gouda cheeses, with flavors such as nettle, dill, black pepper, etc. Also, the Gouda is sold in at least three aged categories, such as... More

Great experience to come out to the farm. Everyone is so pleasant and cafe area very clean. Large variety of cheese flavours to choose from as well as candies and other goodies. Worth the drive...remember its closed on Sundays.
