Pine River cheese store has the best variety of cheeses in the area. Best cheese curds to be found. They are fresh everyday. Best part in visiting them is the $.25 per scope ice cream cones.

Great folks here. Loved the massive variety of cheeses. 25 cent ice cream is a dream. And the local Maple Syrup----yum!

This business is such a treasure for Manitowoc County! Do a little extra map reading and take the time to drive out to English Lake Road. Pine River's selection of quality cheeses, butters, and all things "dairy" will be sure to reward you for your efforts. Besides, the countryside surrounding the Dairy is really beautiful, year 'round!

While Pine River Dairy is off the beaten track, it is well worth finding it! Huge selection of cheeses with great variety and prices. I believe that they provide the milk to many cheesemakers and then offer all of the cheeses at their store. They do make their own butter which is by far the best and the only butter... More

Pine river dairy has an extensive variety of cheese products. Their prices are well below other cheese stores that we have visited in other parts of Wisconsin. Their cheese curds have the best flavor by far we also love the Gouda, the string cheese, and the cheese whips. We will definitely be going back.

This is a place that makes cheese and sells it right there also. Daily fresh cheese curds that squeak and are to die for. Any kind of cheese you can think of, made fresh. Also fresh made butter. And don't forget your 25 cents ice cream cone made with locally made ice cream.

Has one of the largest selection of outstanding Wisconsin cheese. Prices are very fair. The staff is quite knowledgeable. They offer fresh, i mean, really fresh cheese curds several days a week. A very popular spot for locals and visitors alike. The scoop fresh ice cream as well for "cheap" price

Really enjoyed this visit. There were several people behind the counter. We asked a lot of questions about who manufactured the many cheese they supply, and the person helping us answered them all. This is a place that manufactures butter and flavored butter. They also sell Pine River spreadable cheeses (one of my favorites is anything with horseradish). They have... More
