Expected a lot after talking to people but this was a bit of an anticlimax. Whilst the product is top notch the service and experience lack. There wasn't any family character or country flavour to the service provided. Lucky the product is good otherwise it would have been a wasted drive out!

We've been here a few times over the years and always love popping in. There are some really great chocolates that the girls loved and some awesome cheeses.. The prices might seem a bit high but to be honest I've seen twice the price for half the quality in Melbourne and Sydney so just enjoy the food.

Cheese and chocolate tasting, lovely staff. Food was good value and fresh, very informative and there is an animal nursery, well worth a visit.

PROBABLY THE BEST CHOCLATES IVE VEER HAD!! And good value when you multi buy in a pack... The food was quiet good to in the restaurant. There is a small farm for the kids (or grown up kids) the piglets are cute! Ask nicely and you can buy one. Milkshakes are delicious too!

This lovely attraction is a real farm with real animals and real animal smells!!! Anyone expecting otherwise has unrealistic expectations. Traveling with Hubby, Miss 8 and Master 6 exploring the Tablelands.....this was well worth the stop. We found the cheese plate to be excellent value - to the point where we took a doggie bag home!! Yes- there were not... More

We came across this place by accident. It is a clean family run business. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We ordered the cheese and fruit platter small size which was more than enough for us, only $17.95. Great to taste all the different selections of cheeses they make. There is a smell of cows outside but it was hot... More

Great good, even better chocolate and cheese. The ginger yogurt is to die for. If you arrive from 3pm you can watch the vows being milked and have up and close with farm yard animals. Love the chickens scratching in the bushes in the car park as you arrive. And the smell of dairy farm bring back my childhood memories.

Lovely stop if you're driving. Free cheese samples (not chocolate though, they mostly do truffles so that's kinda hard to offer). Cafe is good, you can bring a picnic lunch though if you like. You can also see cheese making, chocolate making, and they have a small animal pen where kids can see baby cows, sheep, goats, pigs and chicken.... More

This is more a restaurant than attraction. Food excellent at reasonable price. Staff very nice. I had the quiche which was just right. Try the local Ginger Beer.

Poor reception, not welcoming. Had to order a cheese board & coffee as nobody was directing anyone for the cheese tasting. No chocolate samples no trying before buying, all $1 plus each, beautiful no idea what they tasted like unless you bought them. Could of had very small samples like they do in other cities with Choc.factories. Cheeseboard was not... More
