We went here hoping for a cheese making demonstration that was advertised in a brochure. Unfortunately, the new location was not yet doing the demo so we were a little disappointed and the staff working that day wasn't the most interactive or welcoming. Fortunately, the cheese itself is quite delicious!

Showed up for a day on the farm the last week of July, no day on the farm as advertised. They were just a cheese store, still bought some cheese and stropwaffel (spelling?), both were good. However not one thing about how cheese is made, no tours or animals. Good opportunity for the kids to learn the definition of a... More

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
