We enjoyed watching the cheese being made. There is a big window to look through to see the cheese making process. There are lots of different cheeses available to sample and are available for purchase. My favorite was the Habanero Jack cheese.

We have been here several times. There are so many cheeses to sample and pick from it takes time. The folks working there are so helpful and will answer all your questions regarding the cheese. There is also a huge window from which you can view cheese actually being made. It is amazing to see. They have gift baskets/boxes to... More

We stop there to buy cheese to take home whenever we get up that way. It is made by them from local milk and they have some unique kinds. We don't get up there often so can order by email also.

WOW! Now here is cheezy place, literally. What variety. What tastiness. What a gem of a place to visit. Try their samples. Your favorites will taste even better than you thought. Sample the cheeses you always wondered about. Watch them as they make cheese. It's quite a process. Browse their gift shop for some unique touristy things. Don't leave without... More

Stopping here was kind of an after thought when we were staying in Ferndale nearby. We were very glad we made the short drive over. It's a pretty nondescript little place but the cheese they make here is awesome. There are so many kinds to taste you may go on cheese overload. It was all delicious and we left with... More

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
