The company no longer has tours and no longer sells local. Their natural cheeses are sold in Santa Fe and Albuquerque. The tours and selling to the public was stopped as safety measures according to a sign on the front door. I think their web site lists the locations that sell their cheese. I had went to the local super... More

They are no longer selling cheese out of the factory, you want to go to the Ranch Store on Lake St. Very friendly and they get the fresh cheeses daily. We got free samples and the bricks of cheese are $4.25/each. Great deal! They even gave us a free ice pack as we were traveling. They have a BBQ on... More

This is a small business that sells mostly wholesale to retailers. There is a bricked entrance with blue lattice and a silver door that says Welcome, for some reason this is not a public entrance and you will cause a lot of excitement if you try to enter here. If you want to purchase cheese or just take a peek... More

I had read other Tripadvisor reviews about things to do in Tucumcari. So we went to the Cheese Factory. I am so glad I did. I bought some Cheddar and Green Chile cheese. It really packs a punch. I'm sorry that I didn't get the Feta cheese. Well, next time...

I first found this great cheese by accident on the way to Albuquerque. Bought a couple of 10 oz, packages of the Green Chili, Jack. Liked it so well I stopped on the back to Fort Worth and purchased several to give to friends. They liked it so well that on my last trip I brought back 100 lb. We... More

This place is literally in te middle of nowhere. Go in the front door without the sign on it, and there's one case they sell cheese out of. You have to buy the feta in bulk, but it's so worth t! Asiago is good, too. They don't give tours, but it's a neat lilltle operation to see.

I hope we go home this way so I can stock up the refrigerator in my motor home with lots of this wonderful cheese. We paid only $2.99 a pound for great cheese. If sold at grocery I bet you would pay upwards of $6 pound. I believe the Feta has won awards. Pepper Jack is perfect. It comes in... More

Did not expect to find wonderful, organic cheeses in Tucumcari, but that's just what they have here. Buy it right at the factory, or at Cornerstone Sandwich Shop on Route 66. Excellent cheeses, specializing in Feta, which they ship all over the US.
