We first started going to the Loleta Cheese Factory when I was a teenager 30 years ago. Their quality has been top rate every time I've been there. They have so many yummy flavors of chees and also carry other local products. The staff is very knowledgeable about the entire area. I didn't think that I was going to get... More

If you are ever in the Ferndale/Eureka area of Northern California, take the Loleta exit off of 101 and go a couple of miles to the little town of Loleta. There's not much in the town except a lot of historic old buildings, but what really stands out is the Loleta Cheese Factory. Yes, I expected some artisan cheeses, but... More

You don't have to be a cheese-head to enjoy Loleta Cheese. A front window in the shop allows you and your family to enjoy the cheese making process as they do it. You can see how "Curds & Whey" is made. You can also try their free samples of the different types of cheeses. We talked to one of the... More

Loleta Cheese factory is worth getting off the road for. For a small place it had allot. We sampled so many wonderful cheeses. Since we were traveling we didn't think about ice. But they had small ice packs for $1.25. (we had a small red ice chest. this was perfect) They also have a beautiful garden that has items in... More

It was definitely worth the stop to see this quaint little shop. Interesting to watch the cheese being made and there were samples of every single cheese they make. We had a hard time deciding because they were all so good! We finally settled on three plus a few other goodies that they stock. Friendly and helpful staff. Enjoyed very... More

Small store front with many samples of cheese to try. Look through the glass to see giant tubs of cheese being made and make a purchase. Nice, small, yet big operation. Friendly people. Off highway 101 toward the ocean. Walk through town and talk with the people.

They make SO MANY types of cheeses (including some organic), it was great to be able to taste/compare them all and really choose our favorites. We bought 5 blocks of cheese along with a basket full of other items to snack on. The gardens were a nice surprise; a quaint place to relax! Friendly staff too.

They have a great variety of cheese and everything was delicious, but don't expect a factory tour or something like that. It's a tiny place with a big window watching to the back room where they make the cheese. The woman at the front is very informative, about the cheese and other attractions around. The surrounding of Loleta looks very... More
