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.

What a fun little adventure to find the Cheese Factory. Very interesting tour, great cheese and the gardens were beautiful. Loleta is a quaint little seaside town

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

We stopped here after seeing the billboard and being told about it in the Tourist Information center in Fort Bragg. I was nervous at first, as Loleta is a tiny town with a railroad going through it, looking rather past its prime, but we pushed on and parked in the empty street and went into the cheese factory. It is... More

We stopped by the Loleta Cheese Factory at about 9am. The kids loved seeing the cheese being made in through the windows of the shop. The employee working the store, answered our questions about it, and let us know of a scavenger hunt that they have out back in their garden. Our kids had fun looking for different stutues, rocks,...

I love this place. It's just a tiny little shop, but it has tons of great stuff to look at, great cheese, and you can stand in the window and watch them work.

Low prices on cheese since it's the mother source. Nice to see the cows, and how the cheese is made. The lady who gives the tour is upbeat and efficient. You only have to listen for a few minutes, sample wonderful cheese and spend a low amount on tasty cheeses. They are good in your car for three to four... More

Visiting the "Avenue of the Giants" and then on to Ferndale to see the Victorian Buildings and Shops we came across the Loleta Cheese Factory. Loleta is near Ferndale, and we stopped to replish our cheese and bread/cracker supplies. This was a great find. First they are open 7 days a week. The cheese is made on site and includes... More
