“Get Your Gouda In Oakdale!”

Oakdale Cheese & Specialties
Ranked #1 of 9 things to do in Oakdale
Attraction details
Reviewed July 22, 2013

This place produces an excellent Gouda Cheese, from straight ahead gouda to smoked to herb infused and it is all of a superb quality. We stopped on our way home from a vacation up Sonora Pass a few years ago. We had not been back since then until this last weekend and found that everything was still just as good. We also picked up a REALLY good sour dough baquette. We picked up some Onion Quark, too. I'd read about quark but had not tasted it before. It's like a spread with a good tang to it and we found it different and fun. They have a nice, shaded area for picnicing, a fenced off area displaying some of their livestock, a pond and a dog run area which can be very handy when traveling with your pet. Remember, they did not have to provide the dog run so please clean up after your pet. It makes it nicer for the owners and the next users. If you're headed through town and like a good cheese you have to check this place out, even if you don't have a dog.

Passing through Oakdale, this is a great stop. See the making of the cheese, taste the cheese and take some home with you. Lots of other products to choose from. Well worth a stop.

Great place to take the family to see how cheese is made. They have live animals out back and really nice gardens. Elementary schools in the area always visit this wonderful place on field trips.

I'm local to the area, so I haven't been exploring the grounds, I just always shoot straight to the store for some fantastic Gouda cheese. They have great gift baskets around Christmas time and I always get some to give as gifts. They are always a hit! I especially enjoy the black pepper Gouda. A great little place to stop and shop if you are in Oakdale.

The cheese was ok. The cheese cake, advertised as a traditional GERMAN cheesecake was plain american style.
The service was less than mediocre and grumpy. Well, we did arrive at 9:05 am (this is short after opening...)
