We stopped in here to show our French family member around. They were greeted in perfect English and then French. We loved the cheese. Definitely get the truffle Raclette and curds. They won't disappoint.

We love the stinky cheese here. It smells so bad but it tastes too damn good not to eat it. We always buy some when we are wine tasting.

The cheese is very good but they only make rachlette cheese. I was expecting something like the cheese lady in TC where there would be more to choose from. They serve the rachlette on the meat and cheese tray at Suttons Bay Cider so we...More

A barn with only one sample of cheese. Yes, tasty but not worth it especially since it comes with the lady employee at the counter reaking with attitude. We could have purchased more IF she would have engaged in some conversation regarding the cheese making...More

Always our first and last stop when we get to Leelanau county. We stock up on the Raclette cheese during our stay and then stock up on the cheese when we head back to home so we have it filled in our fridge at home!

Fantastic Raclette with interesting heritage and very informative employee. Cute little store very unassuming for this award winning cheese. She also gave us some recipes, that I look forward to trying! We will search out your cheese in our local grocery stores.

Stopped by to try the award winning cheese. Oh so good! Talked to Anne for quite awhile. What a treat to speak directly to the cheese maker. Purchased some Raclette and a partyclette. Planning to try it out with some friends this week. Can't wait!
