“A world of cheese...nice farm!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We happened upon this cute little working farm by accident...just driving by and saw the sign by the road. We were delighted when we turned in and began to see this farm that looked like it was in a land where time stood still. It was so quiet, natural, relaxed, and laid back. There is a petting area and some other things to do here but my mother and I were interested in cheese. We were especially interested to try a sample of the "Dragon's Breath" cheese. We did.
The "Dragon's Breath" cheese is a very good blue cheese that we enjoyed as a small sample. We sampled several other cheeses...various types of Gouda which appeared to be their specialty and lots of types of spreadable Gouda combinations called Smeerkaas...Yummy!
Upstairs there is a small antique shop which is a fun 10 minute activity.
We bought three cheeses to take home from our 15 day vacation to Canada and upon reflection this cute little cheese farm was one of the most enjoyable stops we made. Thank you That Dutchman's Cheese Farm!

“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

On the Fundy shore drive we stumbled across this cheese shop. Excellent selection of Cheese products and helpful staff. There were guinea hens, peacocks and other birds strolling about the property. Nice view of the bay as well. We picked up a wheel of Gouda and a variety of cheese spreads. The Dragons Breath blue cheese is excellent.

“Tasty cheese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We picked up cheese on our way through. Dutch couple own the farm and make the cheese. I particularly enjoyed the old growler gouda. They also have a cafe which was a nice ambiance but food was below average compared to cafe in Holland. Can't speak for the nature park because we didn't pay to see it but fun to see a gorgeous peacock roaming around free. Nice place to stop in.
