This shop is located along the side of the road and has cheese, baked goods, a restaurant, gifts, and more. There are free samples of almost everything they sell. It is a great way to break up a long car ride with some tasty snacks or a good meal.

Grandpas Cheese barn is a cute place to stop. There is a sweet shoppe and plenty of cheese to choose from to sample. Although I have to mention that none of their products are natural. They are processed and a good bit of the candy is repackaged candy (jelly bellies in their paper). It is a fun place to take... More

I don't think they make any cheese there. It looks as though they repackage cheese from other companies but they are noted as such. The top floor is mostly cheese and the bottom floor has more variety of dips and jellies, etc. The bottom floor also has a small restaurant / ice cream shop. The chocolate shop is in another... More

Two floors of cheeses, sauces, jellies, popcorn, seasonings and next door, chocolate! Many varieties of cheese and numerous flavorings added. Garlic, pepperoni, salsa, horseradish, etc. and most all had free samples. Very friendly and helpful staff. Maybe a little pricey, but some are so unique and so tasty they are worth it.

Samples of so many tasty treats, and not just cheese. I love the hot raspberry cheese. My husband loves the pickled eggs. We both love the dried green beans. They are crispy and just a little sweet. The cheese curds are a must. My favorite is the plain cheddar. They have no sugar added jams that taste like natural fruit.... More

Great variety and free samples but over priced. My favorites any aged cheese, chocolate covered macaroons, frying cheese, fruit cider, deep fried turkey breast lunch meat, and chocolate covered Fritios.

And More! flavored butters, oils, chips, ice cream, pretzels, crackers, sweets, salsas, sauces, hundreds of products, some very hard to find cheeses, samples of everything! Best quality. Bar None. A foodies' paradise. And this is all in the retail portion of the barn. They also have a wonderfully quaint old fashioned style sandwich/ice cream shop where you can partake in... More

Grandpa's not only has tasty soups and sandwiches, there are baked goods and ice cream. However, the surprise is on the 2nd floor - a huge variety of cheeses, deli meats, and a myriad of taste treats which you actually can taste! Be sure to allow plenty of time for that experience!
