This is a family owned and operated business. Not very big, but has great cheese and amazing people who work there.

Every time we go through Oakdale, on the way to the Bay area from Yosemite, we have to stop to feed the goats and llama and chickens and of course get a grilled cheese sandwich. This last time we had delicious tomato soup with our sandwiches. The outside picnic tables are next to the little lake with giant koi and... More

First of all we love the cheese and place. My daughter who has autism loves the animals. She can spend hours feeding and petting them. The Koi pond is beautiful. Always able to find unique gifts in the store too.

Was driving North to Sacramento and drove by the Oakdale Cheese Factory and decided to turn around and go back and see what was there. It was a Friday and they weren't making cheese that day but did have a video. They have lots of different cheeses and meats to choose from and Gouda is their specialty. They had a... More

Oakdale Cheese & Specialties is located on Route 120 in Oakdale, California, about 30 miles southeast of Stockton. It's open daily from 9 AM to 6 PM (5 PM in winter) except Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Day. Signage is poor, so it's easy to miss if you're traveling fast along the highway. The place includes the cheese-making facility where you... More

In Oakdale for a night, and saw this on Yelp and since we are cheese lovers, popped in! They have nice picnic grounds with pond, ducks, animals to feed, and a little cheese shop with samples. We bought the Quark Sun-dried Tomato spread- yummy! We looked for the grilled cheese sandwiches but didn’t see it advertised inside and didn’t ask.... More

Almost passed it by but made a quick turn to investigate and glad we did. Family-run business with samples of most products. Please stop to buy some gouda. Must also try the quark from their original Dutch recipe.

We stopped here because it looked so cute. The Gouda cheese is very good, but the customer service is terrible. I felt like the gal that checked us out would rather be any where but there helping us

I was born in Holland and I have been buying cheese ever since they opened up. From the beginning we found the cheese superior to what you buy in Holland. My personal favorite is the cumin. Some of the cheeses imported from Holland tend to be somewhat bitter. Not so the Oakdale cheeses. I have visited their factory over the... More

The cheese making is shut down on weekends, so you only get to look through windows and guess. The grilled cheese sandwiches made a decent snack, but the cheese samples were each about 1/8" square, barely enough to taste. The best part was the beautiful grounds with the pond and the animals (even though you could not actually go into... More
