Not a must visit place in my view as they only show a small sections of the cheese making process. You have the chance to sample 2-3 types of cheese which are good but as they need to be refrigerated, you cannot get to bring...More

Nice place to visit. They have glass panels along the factory to view the different processes in cheese production. Had a taste of 3 different produce and they were very tasty. You can also attend cheese making or ice cream making class. Instructions are given...More

Not a must stop if you are short on time. You need a car to get here easily otherwise it's either a taxi or local attraction bus which runs very infrequently. This is good fun for children if they want to make cheese. If you...More

They do sell decent cheese and ice cream, but there weren't really any tour per-se. The farm itself is good sized, so do spent a little time walking the compound after the eating one of their real good ice creams. The cheese was not low...More
