If you want quality at better prices than any grocery chain or even Walmart go there and get wonderful cheeses and so many variables Swiss cheese is what they're famous for. Plenty to see while there. Ample parking for RV of all sizes

We had been here before it changed the name and it was great. Today, there was very little cheese cut and packaged, ready to go, and not much other inventory on the shelves. Left empty handed. New owners, maybe?

Hi Shirley, we do not offer tours to the public due to food safety requirements. We do offer viewings of our films that tell the story of Rothenbuhler Cheesemakers and show how we make Swiss cheese. Thank you!
