It is hard to beat a $4 grilled cheese made with fresh gouda and enjoyed in the sun on this cheese factory's beautiful grounds. This is definitely not a place to stop for lunch - sandwiches are too small and that's all they've got - but it definitely IS a place to stop, stretch your legs, have a snack, and... More

Very gouda cheese. We bought the grilled cheese and the kids loved it. Just wish it was bigger. They have many varieties as well.I'm giving 4 stars due to the staff was not very friendly.

Great Cheese (especially the Mediterranean) Gouda. Beautiful setting and perfect for families. Kids can feed the animals and fish.

We stopped year for a fast meal and had a grilled cheese toast. It was quite good but nothing really special. However the landscape was amazing

get the grilled cheese gouda sandwich. You won't regret it! Any time we are in Oakdale we always stop for a sandwich and some gouda for the road. Super quaint area with a petting zoo, friendly cats, and a lake/pond with koi newly added.

I LOVE their gouda. The cumin & mild are my two faves. Their curds are great too when available. My daughter loves the animals. She gets handfuls of feed for $.25 to feed the goats & chickens. The alpaca is a grumpy gus watch out for him! Lol

OK. To be honest, I have not been inside this Cheese Factory, because most locals decided to Boycott the place when they cut down many of the trees that used to line both sides of the highway (without permission) just before they built the place. Those trees were OLD and we really loved them, and they are gone forever because... More
