In a postage stamp size town surrounded by dairy farms what could be more perfect and simultaneously incongruous than a small cheese factory?! Loleta Cheese factory has a wide variety of cheese to taste (yum!) from squeaky cheese curd to smoked cheddar, smoked salmon cheddar to the surprisingly good caraway jack. You can watch them making the cheese right there... More

Stopped in during our vacation and had samples of the delicious cheeses and roamed around the quaint little shop looking at jellies and jams and such. We loved this cheese shop so much that we came back and bought a few different cheeses and some amazing lemon curd jam that is out of this world! The lady running the shop... More

24 different kinds of cheeses, all of them are excellent! An additional treasure is the flower garden in the back, which was an incredible sight. We were had the pleasure to meet with Bob, the owner, he was very personable and a helped our future adventures of the Northern Cal areas (like a personal Chamber of Commerce!)

Loleta is a tiny down between Ferndale and Eureka. It house the Loleta Cheese Factory. We walked in the door and were immediately greeted by the family that runs the cheese factory. They offered tastes of all the various cheeses they make (our favorite was the jalapeno jack and the smoked cheddar). We were encouraged to stroll through the gardens... More

This is a small cheese factory located in a small town which is on the way to everywhere else. You can watch them make cheese through a few windows. One of the attendants will explain what's going on if you ask. You can sample all of their cheeses in their store and pick your favorites to take home. Not much... More

This is another hidden gem in northern California just north of Ferndale. We've been twice and loved it both times. The people are so friendly and knowledgeable about their cheeses. You can taste cheeses until you can't take anymore, so go for it. We always end up with a bag of cheeses , some crackers and salami for a great... More

This wonderful cheese factory is family run. 34 varieties of cheese are made on- site. Large windows allow you to watch the production on days when they are making the cheeses. Call for dates if you want to watch. Samples are offered in their tasting room. Their garden patio is beautiful and well cared for. Helpful staff will explain the... More

Picked up a few selections from this quality local gem. Garlic Jack and smoked cheddar are winners. Really you can't miss with any variety. Friendly staff.
