This was one of our stops on our Segway tour. We saw some of the behind the scenes and sampled about 17 cheeses! Good stuff!

We ended a wonderful Segway tour at the Vella Cheese Company. They have a vast array of cheeses made on site. Very reasonable prices.

If you like good cheese then this is the place for you! Vella Cheese Company offers samples of all of their MANY cheeses as well as a wholesale price compared to your local grocery.

The cheese is well worth the price and the old building is very cool. We enjoyed our cheeses and salami from this shop! The employees allowed us to taste whatever we wanted to decide what to buy. Would definitely go back!

We stopped at the Vella Cheese Company during a bike tour and it was great! The variety of cheese is great and quality is superior. We actually brought sharp cheddar home with us to Wisconsin. Don't tell anyone!

This is an easy stop off the local bike path. Taste a few cheeses and then they will cut for you a piece as small or large as you wish. Since I was solo, a smaller portion was appreciated
