A restful place to sit and enjoy a bite and a hot cuppa coffee.

The farm is abundant with sheep, geese, pot-bellied pigs, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, cats, varied bird-life and the like.

The cheese on offer titillates the palate beyond imagination.

We enjoyed just sitting around relaxing to the max.

Quaint little shop with tasty delights from Holland. Staff in-store seem obscure.
Not as hygienic as one would expect. Could be the goats grazing near by. Restaurant seems to be a work in progress.

the areas are not as clean as they should be, the eating areas are not my sence, attention needs to be paid to that place.

We went to the Van Gaalen farm on a Saturday morning, expecting a great family outing. We got there 2 minutes after the cheese making tour started and was rudely shown away by a staff member. We then went to another staff member, asking if we cannot join the tour, we did not mind missing the first 2 minutes of the tour. The tour was very dissapointing and definately overprised. It was supposed to include a 'cheese tasting' which ended up being two bits of cheese per person, not even bite-size. The tour price also included some kind of tart and a drink. The tart was so dry no one in the family could swallow it down with the cheap diluted cooldrink provided. The setting is also not nice, there are plastics and other rubbish where the goats stay and a smelly little dam. Definately not where I would want to have a picnic or a family outing again.

We decided to do a tour of the cheese farm so headed off early on Saturday morning. We arrived to a tranquil setting, with the mist slowly lifting.

The tour / info session was very informative with our guide explaining the history of Dutch cheese and what the links are between the cheese farm and their heritage. Although the manufacturing facility seems very small when looking at it, you soon realize that quality cheeses are being matured here. The cheeses sampled allowed us to experience various flavours which came in handy when making our purchases later.
