Gouda cheese to please

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.

Whenever I'm going to stop at the border I always try to make a stop here. They let you sample the cheese beforehand to make sure you like what you're going to buy. My favourite is the garlic curds

I like that you can sample so many of their flavours before purchasing. Their cheese will last a long time even once opened. We've had them mail cheese to us in summer and it still lasts well. Very flavourful, competitively priced and local. Can't beat that! I see sooo many restaurants in Thunder Bay that use this family's cheese in... More

Another place we have been driving by trying to fit in and finally made it. We were surprised to see they moved to a new location closer to the highway. The building is beautiful with a little eating area. They have only have been in the new store a few weeks. Plan to be making the cheese right there in... More

This is a great place to visit with a really wide variety of gouda to choose from. The cheese making days are definitely worth too.

If you like cheese - especially gouda - this place is worth the trip. You get to look through a large window and view the cheese making process, the shop has lots of varieties to purchase and the people working there are really friendly. Best of all, it is a really high quality cheese and you know it is also... More
