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...

I had purchased Fifth Town Cheese in the past from Farmer's Markets in Toronto and was very impressed. We finally decided to make a trip up to Prince Edward County and make the facility part of our visit. After tasting a variety of delicious cheese, we chose a cheese platter to bring home with us. As per a previous reviewer,... More

We were very happy that Fifth Town is open again. The staff gave us several tastes of different cheeses we were interested in and we came home with our favourites. There is also a nice selection of homemade jams and other items. It is just a small store but very personal. We have enjoyed the wine and cheese tasting event... More

After reading several articles on-line I really looked forward to a taste visit. We were not disappointed and loved so many of the samples we tried. Outstanding flavours and unique selection. But it was only when we arrived home to find what we thought was locally made chees from The County, turns out to be imported from Italy and repackaged... More

Attended a Saturday cheese tasting with wine pairings at fifth town cheese. The store has been re-opened under new management that has food experience. The tasting is a tremendous value-$20 for 5 cheeses and 5 wine pairings. I think the owner realized how tremendous it was as a comment was made on "how generous he cheese portions were"...don't know if... More

Highly recommend the Wine and Cheese Tasting! Unfortunately it was to be "tutored", and even though we did learn a lot I feel like it was not quite as advertised. Also, the cheese "factory" is not currently running as it was just recently opened which is fine (Hence the 4/5 rating). We attended June 30th,2013 and had wine from the... More

What amazing cheeses! Try the cheddar goat cheese - a great tangy bite, with a wonderful finish. And we purchased a lovely velvety soft rind covered cheese - can't recall the name, but it was heaven! Yum!

At The Cider House, it was recommended we stop in at Agrarian Cheese Market. It took a bit of work to find it (the sign is a little hard to spot), but are we ever glad we took the time to find it. We had a gorgeous sharp cheddar goat cheese - sooooo good! and another soft cheese with a... More

Fifth Town Artisan Cheese makes over a dozen different types of cheeses, and you can sample them all. It's a popular stop ... when we first arrived, near closing time, a tour bus had just dropped off a large group, and the line up to get in stretched to the parking lot. The space inside was small ... guess they... More
