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

Love this cheese. Every time we go to the farm I have to look through the window at the wheels of gouda and admire their goodness! If you compare this to the gouda from Holland, the Thunder Oak cheese is far superior in taste and texture. The different flavours are awesome and we plan meals around the cheese!

We went on a day they don't make the cheese. Not alot to see. You see the empty mixing bowls and the cheese on racks. It said they make cheese on Mon., Wed., and Fri. I would say go on those days other wise it's just a little store with cheese and candy for sale.

Enjoyed the visit, saw cheese being made and got to sample all the cheeses. Was definitely worth the stop and prices for the cheese was very reasonable.

Here's a pioneer on-farm processor who makes an excellent cheese. Hard to find outside the Thunder Bay area but well worth a trip to the cheese facility and farm next door, right in the middle of a fertile microclimate ideal for farming. The family is Dutch, like many of the farmers in the area, and they have brought a great... More
