Plenty of samples and well made cheese. We enjoyed the rustic store area and being able to see where the cheese was made. We enjoyed this stop very much.

Off the beaten track up a side road just outside Ludlow. We came in after a hike up Okemo Mountain and stocked up on excellent cheeses. Not the usual cheddar, it's their own unique recipe. Not to be missed.

This attraction is not worth the side trip. It is advertised as the oldest cheese factory in the country, but there does not appear to be much going on. It is more like someone's house rather than a factory. I'm missing something here. We did...More

We went 50 minutes out of the way to visit. Saw a pamphlet at a museum and thought this would be nice. Was not what I expected. First, the stairs to enter are large rocks that are not even or safe. Once inside, the odor...More
