What's not to love? Award winning cheeses, housed on a scenic farm down a country road. The only problem: which cheeses to buy and how big a wedge of each. Yum!

Great selection of cheese in wonderful setting. Prices are fair for quality. A little bit outside the main road but worth the detour.

The cheeses here are organic and they are wonderful. They are expanding and I can see why. Definitely worth buying a sampling of their cheeses.

We stopped here as a side trip on our way home in NH from Quebec City. Beautiful countryside, wonderful cheeses, great sandwiches! The woman behind the counter was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Our French is terrible and she was kind enough to explain everything in perfect English for us. So many delicious other locally-made goodies in the store. This last... More

Yum! That sums up the cheese here in a word. We stopped here out of curiosity and were pleasantly surprised by the friendliness we encountered and delicious samples. We ended up buying cheese... and more cheese. Be sure to stop and see their storage area -- your next wheel of cheese is probably aging in there!

We were travelling in the surrounding rolling hills of Compton when we came upon this place. The cheeses are out of this world. No wonder they win prizes. They also offer other regional products for sale. Pleasant and helpful people.

We stopped here on our "mini food tour" in this area. The young woman presenting the tastings said she knew very little English however she did a wonderful job describing each of the chesses we were tasting! They make all of their cheese on site and have a very impressive "cheese cave" that you can go and take a look... More

Wow! So good cheese. You can also buy fine products, all from the region. And you can taste before buy. You must go there if you go around Compton. Psst... bring a cooler.
