A 15 min drive outside Thunder Bay enjoy cheese samples, Dutch treats and baked goods. A local must see and buy some great cheese.

Always a pleasure shopping Thunder Oak! Best cheese curds and Gouda! 5+ stars! A must try if visiting Thunder Bay, and a family favourite for those who live here.

We always stop by for their fresh garlic or plain curds. Neat little bags, great to nibble on when driving!

Do you like Extra Old Gouda .... this is your dream stop. They make it, you sample it, you will buy something - guaranteed. Best Extra Old Gouda in Ontario. I have tried dozens and dozens of different brands .... and always come back to the Thunder Oak Cheese Farm. Many other varieties are top notch also.

The cheese is excellent but there are also other great products. This is the best good by far. We often buy a whole round of it to bring as gifts. They have other European foods that are interesting and licorice.

We rarely if never pass this quaint cheese shop up. Our favorite is the garden herb Gouda. Friendly staff. Homemade items. Sometimes we miss the old farm shop but this one is wonderful too.

We are so fortunate to have this store in the area! Great cheese made locally (I love their mild Gouda for grilled cheese sandwiches) and we don't have to miss our "kroketten" or "hagelslag", or "speculaas".
