Say delicious! A little bit off the main strip... but not too far out of the way, this cheese shop is a must for cheese lovers. Really great selection of cheese made in their local "caves" -- from cow to sheep, and goat to buffalo. One even marinated in grappa that is a MUST!

Better than Blackriver cheese in that the store employee was very knowledgeable about the cheeses he sold and the process for making them. The quality of the cheese is excellent and in particular the spreadable goat cheese was a big hit with us. A little bit of a drive to get there, but the cheese is high quality made naturally....

It was a sad day when the old Fifth Town went under, but we were glad that someone in the cheese business took over the facility! After waiting a couple of years production to run again, we visited again last week. We were certainly happy to see som of our old favourites (although the Lighthall Tomme is still not back... More

The only problem with this place is that it's too far from where I live! But maybe that's a good thing because we would spend too much money and eat too much cheese. SO GOOD! Its a long drive from other parts of Prince Edward County but the scenery along the way is beautiful and the destination is worth it.

Some interesting cheeses, focusing mostly on goat milk, or in some cases water buffalo milk cheeses. They also had a variety of interesting imported cheese.

Everything from the eco-friendly building, to the friendly staff, to watching the cheese being made a few feet away, to tasting whatever cheese you want make this an absolutely must see on any trip through Prince Edward County. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful and generous with tasting samples, as they know it's almost impossible to leave empty handed... More

I am so glad we stopped at Fifth Town Artisan Cheese. The building itself is a most interesting facility to view. But what is inside is best of all. Paula let us taste some of the amazing cheeses and was just a real gem with lots of info and tips. We purchased two of the Fifth Town chevres (goat cheeses)... More

There is nothing better than meandering the countryside visiting wineries and then finding a wonderful snack. We tested a variety of soft cheeses including nettle and lemon cheese with crostini. We left with armloads of cheese and crackers ready for the next winery. The service was great and the ladies very helpful in sampling and guiding flavours. Lovely!

If you are visiting Picton, Prince Edward County, you must visit the Fifth Town artisan cheese maker. Selection is somewhat limited but, what is available is extraordinary in quality and taste. They were out of business for a couple of years, however they reopened recently and likely require more time to make a greater variety of cheeses. I tried all... More

Laura ( I believe was her name) was fantastic, very personable and friendly! We were encouraged to sample the cheeses we were interested in, and in the end we went with the bootlegger, the pecorino and our friends bought some sort of sausage:) It was near the start of our tour of many wineries and was perfect to nibble on...
