What a great farm! The staff was amazing! I wish I had gotten her name, because she was a gem! Gelato was delicious, yogurt was supreme, and cheese was phenomenal! Everyone should stop by for a visit.

Fox Hill Cheese House is a dairy farm where the Holstien and Guernsey cows can be seen grazing peacefully in the surrounding green pastures. They sell a selection of regular and flavoured cheeses, quark and dairy desserts. This is a "stop and shop" without fanfare....More

Great little spot to visit and see cheese being made. The county roads you'll drive to get there will give you a free tour of the farms of the area.

A previous visit was more informative and the staff much more welcoming, but still the cheeses are worth the visit. Be certain to buy curds - fresh, warm, most delicious - nothing like you get at the grocery store.
