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

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

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
