On a whim, my sweetie and I decided to stop at Grandpa's Cheese Barn (after seeing the signs on I-71). We love to visit local oddities, so we figured this place would be a fun stop on our travels. Well, not only did we get the chance to stretch our legs (the store isn't too much further off the highway... More

There are more good things to taste in this little store then one can imagine. Great selection of cheeses as one would imagine by the name. But that is just the beginning. There are meat and canned products galore.

Good selection of cheeses and the ability to sample all of them. They also have a sandwich shop that made good looking sandwiches. Next time I'm traveling by I hope I'm going by hungry while they are open as I want to try the sandwiches.

I'm a local and go all the time for lunch. Great sandwiches and shakes. Also love to sample everything, can make a meal on samples alone! Good chocolates and fudge at Sweetie's across the parking lot too.

I can't tell you how many times I passed this on I-71, thinking it was just a tourist trap. A family member finally made me stop and I must admit that I was impressed. I like tasting the free samples and finding new cheeses that I like--like cranberry cheese on the last visit. Also like the wide selections of jams... More

I love Grandpa's Cheesebarn. This is a must stop when traveling south down I-71. They have an incredible selection of cheeses, beef sticks, jams, syrups, dips, chocolates, and mixes. You can also sit down and enjoy ice cream, sandwiches, and coffee. What's really special here are the samples. We don't eat before coming here because the samples will fill you.... More

If you are looking for a special cheese it is here-plus so much more. If you crave chocolate you will be in chocolate heaven. plus much more. Items are expensive but worth just going to see

I have tried to get my family to stop here for the last two years. They will never fight me about this again. So much more than cheese and all of it delicious! Can't wait to go back.
