Absolutely some of the best cheese you will ever have. Staff is friendly and able to explain their products. Always busy, but always well staffed and visit is smooth. Easy to get to once you exit. Don't miss out on the sweet shop!!

This is always a must stop on trips to the Ashland area. They have an amazing selection of cheeses and offer samples of everything.

Lots of cheese to sample. Be sure to visit the candy barn at the same location. If you're there on a warm day, you can buy an insulated bag that comes with an ice pack to keep the candy cool. Lots of unique items

We stop quite often for a break when traveling I71. Good place for a nice sandwich and a good milkshake. Always fun to sample all the cheeses, meats and candies.

Over priced.....one time visit ok. After, been there -done that. Salad ($8 not big and served on a paper plate) was good but just ice beef lettuce, toppings and dressing were good. Husbands sandwich was nothing special and cookie was a disappointment. Best thing was the samples they had around.

Drove by this place on the way to Lake Erie. Great place with excellent cheese, meats, jerky, etc. Too much to mention. Credit/Debit cards were accepted. Nice place to have lunch.

As a vegetarian, I was not stoked by the amount of meat products, but we bought some garlic cheddar to take home and I am sitting at my kitchen table, and it is amazing. It is so amazingly great. The cheese barn is two stories, with a bunch of kitschy stuff and cheese and meats and popcorn and mixes and... More
