This is a small one room cheese factory. On my last visit the three employees were gathering cheese curd - the first time in 4 or 5 visits that I actually witnessed the process. It is worth a stop to sample their nice cheeses (fresh chive is my favorite) but don't be assured you'll see them making cheese. They have... More

Quaint shop with excellent cheese. Plenty of samples and you can get off priced cheese - i.e. the end pieces that don't fit the shape of a bar, etc.

We stopped here after finding a brochure about Crowley Cheese at a visitor's center. There wasn't any cheese being made that day so nothing much to see, but they did have samples you could try. There was also a staff member who could answer any questions we may have had. It was a quick stop for us, but worth the... More

The people are friendly and the cheese is delicious! Not only did they have samples of the cheese, they had jams and spreads galore. So delicious! They weren't making cheese when we went but that's ok, we had a great experience anyways :)

I love cheese, but there's really not much excitement to be had from watching people make it - its basically watching milk curdle, so I wasn't too fussed about the fairly limited viewing opportunities here - its a small operation. However, the staff making the cheese were very friendly and would continually pop their head out to answer any questions.... More

I knew timing might be an issue when we decided to visit and the comments about sampling the cheese made the decision for us. We didn't see cheese being made but a staff member explained the process for us. The store offers a variety of Vermont products. We tasted several kinds of chedder cheese, made our purchases and left.

Nice place to make a side stop. Cheese is really good and reasonably priced. It was fun to watch them making cheese.

Crowley makes some of my favorite cheeses. Their three year old cheese is delicious and their smoked is also very good. Very cheddar like, although not a true cheddar because of the way they rinse the curds. In general, the area is blessed with several excellent cheese makers. Check out the Farmer's Market downtown of Saturday mornings, most have samples... More

Crowley Cheese retains the old cheese-making techniques they have used for generations, plus modern hygiene. It's a trip into the past, a wonderful place to visit, taste their artisanal colby cheeses. And it's right here in Mount Holly!
