Laura ( I believe was her name) was fantastic, very personable and friendly! We were encouraged to sample the cheeses we were interested in, and in the end we went with the bootlegger, the pecorino and our friends bought some sort of sausage:)
It was near the start of our tour of many wineries and was perfect to nibble on from place to place:)

Great cheese, great service, small and lovely... What's not to love:):)

Back back for sure this summer!

I had purchased Fifth Town Cheese in the past from Farmer's Markets in Toronto and was very impressed. We finally decided to make a trip up to Prince Edward County and make the facility part of our visit. After tasting a variety of delicious cheese, we chose a cheese platter to bring home with us. As per a previous reviewer, when we unpacked the cheese at home we were shocked to find that 3 of the 5 cheese selections were not locally made but imported from Italy and a couple of them were clearly over-ripe (not the same selection as we had tasted). The names of the cheese threw us off since they were obviously renamed. The facility is beautiful, but I felt cheated as I was expecting local cheese and didn't drive 3 hours for imported cheese (which should have been pointed out during the visit).

We were very happy that Fifth Town is open again. The staff gave us several tastes of different cheeses we were interested in and we came home with our favourites. There is also a nice selection of homemade jams and other items. It is just a small store but very personal. We have enjoyed the wine and cheese tasting event in the past.

After reading several articles on-line I really looked forward to a taste visit. We were not disappointed and loved so many of the samples we tried. Outstanding flavours and unique selection. But it was only when we arrived home to find what we thought was locally made chees from The County, turns out to be imported from Italy and repackaged with new cute names, and not cheap. The packages are clearly marked, but the whole ambiance leaves one the misimpression that these cheeses were made in their LEED factory. Be sure to ask where the cheese is from, if that matters to you.
