Stopped with kids and grandkids to pick up some blue cheese on a rainy Fall day. Staff were super friendly, everyone provided with samples, then the grandkids picked some popcorn from the field.

This is really a retail outlet. The store opens into the company office and people are at their desks as you shop the small coolers of cheese. Make no mistake though, the cheese is fantastic. This is just not much of a destination. The tour...More
