Always a fun, quick stop for high-quality cheese and snacks. Sample the many gouda flavors, buy a loaf of bread and assorted toppings. Eat at the picnic tables. Feed the farm animals for fun.

I love buying various flavors of the fresh made Gouda from Oakdale Cheese! I give them for gifts to people who have everything! They have wonderful gift boxes already prepared with wine, candies, jams and crackers for your convenience as well.

This is my go to place for local gifts. The Gouda cheese is wonderful and I would recommend the grilled cheese sandwiches. It has a lovely picnic area.
