Loved the goats at the entrance and the Fairview Cheeses are simply delicious. Also had great food in the restaurant. Great spot in the countryside!

Often stop by here for cheese and wine tasting, or cheese platter lunch. Wide selection cheese, and really good wines. Restaurant often full, so advisable to book.

We took the family for the cheese and wine tasting, and enjoyed every moment of it. It was great fun to do the cheese tasting after every wine we tasted.
