Numerous flavours of great Gouda cheese, too many flavours to count! Then there are the cheese curds, squeaky, fresh and flavoured, garlic are my favourite. You can shop for lots of imported Dutch specialties and locally made delights. It is worth the drive to the country.

We visited this facility while on a trip across Canada. We knew of this place via family and needed cheese. This is the best cheese. Flavourful like the original Dutch cheeses of the Netherlands. Only complaint, the location is out of the way for travellers moving along the Trans Canada. We however thought it was worth the extra kilometers.

The place is on the countryside of Thunder Bay. Not much to see after 5 minutes but what is really good is their food. They have a great selection of Gouda with different flavors. We picked the Jalapeno, rosemary, very old and smoked... all of them really good. Then we went for some red wine to pair it with an... More

My family enjoyed the stop into Thunder Oak, they have a very nice facility. We could see the racks of cheese and watch the production workers through a window. There were samples to try the cheese before you bought which was great. And of course the cheese was soo yummy we bought some to bring home to enjoy.

Absolutely love the cheese farm, and always recommend it to all my friends from out of town! Everytime I have friends in town, this is a must see place. Always fresh, the staff is very friendly and the drive is 100% worth it!

If you are in Thunder Bay for any reason whatsoever and you enjoy cheese, check this place out. The gouda is great and there are many types. Be prepared to load up as the prices are extremely reasonable.
