This was our second visit to September Farm, the previous one being to the farm itself. We must side with our fellow reviewer, TravelingDiner1967 respecting this very enjoyable attraction. September Farm Cheese as now presented is essentially a combination souvenir shop/restaurant/dairy store. When the retail operation was on the farm itself, the mom and pop look and feel were much more prominent. We can no longer swap dairying lore with the family who operate the facility, but can revel in their success from the viewpoint of one whose first paid occupation was as dairyman on Ben’s grandfather’s farm. Just driving from Lancaster to the store, seeing no building taller than a silo is nostalgia enough for us.

That said, there is little real difference in the experience of a visit. All of the cheese making still occurs in the large new building. The cow’s milk is still harvested at the same farm, and is reportedly still processed through the three or four thousand pound pasteuriser in the old store building. The milk is then tanked to the new plant via September Farms’ own refrigerated transport. We purchase, and will continue to purchase, many various cheeses and curds, and hope that you will try some for yourselves. We have not tried their ice creams, but will in the future store some in a cooler with dry ice as we head back to Maryland.

Do visit their website, as much more information and an e-shopping cart are presented there.

I love this little cafe/shop! They have wonderful dips and cute gadgets you can buy. You can also watch them making the cheese through a window! They have yummy icecream! Just a fun, cute place to go for lunch or anytime!

This was recommended to us by a local. We had lunch there, enjoyed our sandwiches. Loved the poutine! Not a fan of the soup. Had some cheese tarts (basically cheesecake). Seemed like everyone was enjoying the ice-cream. Cheese Spreads were nice too. If you like chips, they have some local bags (not Herrs). And then lots of the canned goods you'll see elsewhere.
Some interesting finds: Chocolate cheese (supposed to taste like fudge), Fresh butter cream, poutine.

Loved the place the minute we walked in. Beautiful inside with gifts nicely displayed. Great variety of cheeses with sampling station. View of cheese making, and also a sandwich shop. Plenty of parking. Not open on Sunday. Highly recommend.

If you love cheese as much as I do... you have to visit September Farms. Great cheeses... lots of different ones. They always have samples to taste of pretty much every cheese they have. They have an ice cream counter and a sandwich shop where they make the famous Quebec Poutine. Being an ex-pat from Quebec I was really happy to hear they are making it. And it tastes just like back home! Great atmosphere. very clean. worth the detour.
