Very nice store, with locally sourced decor, and a lot of different artisan cheeses. You can find something for any wallet, even cheese paraphernalia. The ice cream corner has a lot of flavours to choose from.

I have visited Black River Cheese company countless times over about 15 years. I love the variety of different cheeses. Samples are a great way to taste the different cheeses. Staff is really friendly. Great ice cream for the kids on a hot day.
