Owner description: North Carolina's oldest and largest cheese manufacturer. Watch cheese being made in our factory viewing room. Our retail store has all our cheeses available plus our fresh country butter, fresh fudge and hand-dipped ice cream. Something new for the kids (and kids at heart) is our Kandy Korner with over 150 varieties of new and traditional candies. We also have a great selection of NC Wines, and imported cheeses as well as Amish Foods.

Nice shop and ice cream parlor with a lot of NC products. Found some interesting cheeses to try; went home with a sampling of 5 different kinds for about $25.

They have lots of different styles and types of cheese. Try a small sample of 4-5 to really appreciate the quality

Nice shop features locally made cheeses, which are awesome. Tours of factory are available, but did not have time to take one.

If you like cheese, don't miss visiting the cheese factory and cheese store in West Jefferson. The store has a large variety of cheeses made at the factory as well as cheeses made in other states and countries. There are wines, sauces, jellies, and other items available for purchase. They do offer cheese at a discount, too! Just look in the refrigerated wall case for the cheese trimmings and get 30% off. Be careful if you are looking for "made in NC" items - read the labels if that is what you want. Great place to get gifts to bring home to family and friends.

We had a great visit to the cheese factory and store. They were making cheese when we were there (check the schedule on their website). We only hung out a few minutes in the factory area and then we were off to the store. Great variety of products, the cheese is absolutely delicious. Be sure to pick up some cheddar and cheese curds. We returned the next day for ice cream which was also amazing.
