Overview

North Carolina's oldest and largest cheese manufacturer. Watch cheese being made in our factory viewing room. Our retail store has all our cheeses available plus our fresh country butter, fresh fudge and hand-dipped ice cream. Something new for the kids (and kids at heart) is our Kandy Korner with over 150 varieties of new and traditional candies. We also have a great selection of NC Wines, and imported cheeses as well as Amish Foods.

They have all kinds of cheese made in house. If it is your lucky day, you can walk across the street and watch tnem make cheese. Cheese is always fresh. They also have cheese curds.

This place is phenomenal. We go here specifically for the cheese curds, port wine cheese, and butter. Every single visit always yields excellent products and good customer SERVICE.

I took my daughter by the Ashe County Cheese Factory and we stayed in the viewing room for quite a while, watching the process. Of course buying the ice cream and cheese curds topped the list.

We watched the process of making cheese in the little viewing room as we also watched the video. This is a quick and free interaction and well worth the visit.
