Stopped here as part of our cycle ride of the Gibbston Valley - the cheese was superb. The goats cheese gouda is an absolute must. There were so many yummy things to buy that we had to go back the next day with the car!!!

Didn't stop and eat here but stopped and bought some cheeses. Great tasting but unfortunately we didn't buy enough as most of it had gone by the time we reached home
