Dropped in for an hour for a walk around the farm and look in on cheese making. Pleasant enough and relaxing. Nice little store with their cheeses for tasting and sale. Would've been especially great a few years ago when our children were small.....

A small farm with animals to pet for the kids, wines to taste for adults and lots of really nice an unusual cheeses in the fridge with little tubs to test each kind from. Some taste like desserts. It's quaint.

These folks know how do make a family farm tour attractive. Self-guided tour map, scavenger hunt for kids (with small prize), friendly farm animals and wine and cheese samples. Plan 30 minutes to an hour (longer if you do the long walk around the pastures).

A visit to the cheese works includes a winery and a farm. Interesting for everyone, all ages. Lots of interesting artisan cheeses to sample. Go Thursdays for fresh curds.

The cheeseworks are located on a working farm with access and viewing areas suitable for families and seniors. Hands on with some of the animals provides a farm experience only minutes from town. The cheese selection is great the quality is top notch and the prices are very affordable. Pair it with some of the berry wines offered for sampling... More
