We loved our tour! It's a neat little place and my 5 year old really enjoyed it. Excellent cheese and ice cream and you have to try the whey ice! Even met a calf that was just born this morning.

Five of us drove to visit the creamery. Got to watch making Mozzarella. Got to sample at least 10 different cheeses. Hosts were very helpful explaining the different cheeses. Bought several packaged cheeses.
