Visitor Tips and News About Cheese Factory Tour
Cheese Factory Tour
If you like free cheese, and lots of different kinds, then this is your place. The tour is $2.00 now -- and if they aren't making cheese in the big long tubs then you stare at empty, long tubs.
Probably the most exciting part of the tour is the robot that boxes the 42-pound big blocks of cheese and stacks then on a pallet. It's painted like a cow.[Tony King, 10/05/2014]

Very good tour of a cheese making factory. They charge you $1 admission, but then let you sample a lot of cheese (they have dozens of varieties that you can try). Starts with a short video, then they explain the history and show a tour. You get to see where they make cream cheese, sour cream and cheddar cheese. It is a working factory, just some glass separates you from the workers.[Matthew Scher, 05/30/2002]
