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 at the factory, go to the smaller white door on the left side of the front of the building. Upon entering, you will see a small cheese display to your left. Stand just inside the door until someone attends to you. Health codes prevent a spur of the moment tour of the factory, but from the doorway you can see most of the operation and I was allowed to take pictures. We purchased a 10 oz block of Green Chile Jack for under $3.00 which I consider a good price. They didn't have change for a $20.00 so we rustled up three dollars in cash and the lady who attended to us had to go get change. It appears that they don't make a practice of selling from the factory. The factory looked very clean and smelled of bleach, the workers were dressed to satisfy health codes and also looked clean. We made our visit brief, but are glad we made the stop, the cheese is made of pasteurized whole milk, green chile, salt, cheese culture, and enzymes, the taste is excellent, should have purchased more!
