friendly, helpful staff, great cheeses! The green chiii cheddar and green chili jack cheeses are my all time favorites, but hard to find away from New Mexico. Well worth a brief stop off I-40. Not a tourist place with samples--just interesting cheese.

Loved seeing how cheese is made and they have great cheeses to pick from. Make sure you travel there with a cooler to buy a lot of cheese and keep it cool.

Don't spend your time going here, as they do not sell cheese here. You are also not allowed to take c tour of the facility.

This place is literally in te middle of nowhere. Go in the front door without the sign on it, and there's one case they sell cheese out of. You have to buy the feta in bulk, but it's so worth t! Asiago is good, too....More

I hope we go home this way so I can stock up the refrigerator in my motor home with lots of this wonderful cheese. We paid only $2.99 a pound for great cheese. If sold at grocery I bet you would pay upwards of $6...More
