This place was great! They had over 30 varieties of cheese to sample and buy. There's a large picture window through which we could watch the cheese being made, and one of the employees explained the cheese-making process while we watched. The factory has a store that (in addition to the cheeses) sells jams, crackers, cured meats, wines, and souvenirs.... More

Great little shop. We had a very informative talk on how the cheese is made by a very nice young lady. We were able to watch as they were stirring the curds and then pressing them. Then we tasted the various cheese made there - very good!

This is a very friendly place to visit, where you get to sample all the different cheeses, as well as watch the processes going on behind the sales area. The Loleta cheeses are all very good, with several different varieties, with different textures. The salesgirl was very pleasant and made our visit enjoyable. If you love cheese, visit the Loleta...

The Loleta Cheese Factory far exceeded my expectations, both for the opportunity to see and learn about cheese being made, and the 34 Loleta Cheeses. The staff were knowledgeable and wonderful at very explicitly describing every step of what I was watching through the window as the crew made Monterey Jack. There was no big noisy crowd, no pressure to... More

If you love cheese then this is a great place to go. All of my family likes to go to this cheese factory. The cheese is delicious and I love that you get to taste test all of their cheese before you buy it and you can see how it's made as they have a window in the store to... More

If you love cheese as much as I do then this is the place for you. They have over 30+ different types of cheese and most of them are available for tasting - including organic. They also have cheese making demonstrations, although not on the day that I was there. There is also a gift shop for wines, jams and... More

No one wants to know what the building or town is like.The cheese? Well,the cheese is awesome,.They offer free samples on all of their cheese.It will be... More

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
