I visited this place, because of a bike tour we were doing for Baiskeli Tours. Very good cheeses, and food. The service was awesome. I will have to visit this place again, with the kids too!

This is an amazing factory and farm and we very much enjoyed our tour. They make more varieties of cheese here than anywhere in the world.

We visited the farm and production facility in early May. While it’s an hours drive from Westlands, it’s certainly worth it and the driving instructions very clear. The tour is managed professionally with clear and helpful explanations and the guide- Purity was outstanding. We visited...More
