Great cheese and we'll worth the stop if passing by. They have a little sandwich shop inside if you are looking for a snack. Curds we got were great. Do have olive oils you can try in small tasting cups. A+ for that.
FRESH curds made just that morning. Great variety of cheeses and samples of a few. Some other items if you want to make your own lunch, but they have a nice lunch counter as well. And what better place for fried curds or a grilled cheese than the place that makes the cheese?
