  • A great attraction, with lots to see. We loved seeing the cows being milked by the rotary milking process at 2.30pm but if someone was there to explain the processes, that would be better. What a sham...  more »

  • Awesome experience! Cheeses are delicious. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Toasties were great! Macadamia cheese is a must try! We bought a few blocks of cheese and were going on a long drive, so they gave us ice packs to keep the cheese cold. You get to pat calves and see different animals. You can even see the milking process. 20/10 would recommend.
  • I recently visited and the coffee and chocolates were divine. The staff were super friendly as well. Overall an enjoyable experience!
  • The staff met us with a cheesy grin. They were helpful and had great customer service. The restaurant was busy therefore service was a little slow, however the staff did their best. Great place to take kids to show them the animals and the process of making cheese and chocolate. Well worth the visit.
  • We took the kids to see this over the weekend and the treatment of the animals was absolutely disgusting. There is a baby animal petting zoo with filthy, muddy concrete floors full of tiny calves and piglets, no bedding or hay whatsoever. It was so sad. This is an inhumane dairy operation making a few extra bucks by bringing in tourists. We left without buying anything and I will never again buy their products in shops.
  • The service was very good and staff friendly. The cheese was also impressive as was the coffee.
