Thank you for your visiting us and for your lovely review. Mr Entrepreneurial is doing quite well out of his little enterprise. He has just saved enough to buy himself some pet fish!

A lovely small place with excellent goats cheese products - milk, milk shakes, ice cream and twelve different cheese styles. There are various cheese platters to taste/ eat/ guzzle - the basic tasting plate at $20 is excellent value covering 7 different cheeses. We would...More

I am not normally a fan of goats cheese but loved all the products here. We had a tasting plate which had about 8 types of goats cheese- loved them all, including the goats milk. Would definitely visit again and purchase their product. We sat...More
