Great goats cheese. Can sample lots of varieties as well as chutney/relish, olives, etc. Interesting to watch how cheese is made and visit the animals. In the summer lovely to have lunch as well in the delightful garden.

It was worth the trip to Salt Spring Island just to see the cheese making process. And followed by the tasting paired with different jams or chutneys. Aamazing. Don't miss it when you are on Salt Spring.

Lovely grounds, Happy cheese makers & totally delicious cheeses. Availed ourselves of the tastings. They were all wonderful. Loved the truffle and the garlic cheeses the most. A wonderful stop and a must-do on Salt Spring Island

A bit off the beaten track, with signage that could be improved to get you there. An opportunity to see a cheese factory at work - even to meet the animals producing the raw materials. There is a cafe there, unfortunately closed when we visited,...More

I would expect that you would have to keep the dog on a leash, and I don't think the dog would be allowed inside the tasting room, But I think quite welcome on the grounds as long as he/she is leashed and under control.
