Hours of Operation:
My mother in California ordered me 4 packages of Oakdale Cheese, to be delivered to my home in Oklahoma City. The cheese was well packaged and incredibly fresh when I received it. Thank you very much, really enjoy your Oakdale cheese here in Oklahoma.
This is a great place for kids to play outside and say hi to the farm animals. Picnic tables around the pond are perfect for enjoying a hot grilled cheese sandwich. Our favorite item to bring home is a bag of cheese curds. Edit: Just had grilled cheese again yesterday, and it's still great!
The first time I went with a Mom’s Group and enjoyed it so much I had to take my husband and kiddos! It’s the perfect place for a little picnic day with children. There’s a corn hole game, farm animals, koi fish, plenty of picnic tables and restrooms. Course the cheese is wonderful! I plan to make frequent trips here and will encourage others to take a visit :)
Fun and unique. Very good, fresh grilled cheese sandwiches. Beautiful grounds. Several tables and clean restrooms. Very nice gift shop too. Worth a visit. Plenty of parking most days.
I didn't know about this place, my daughter invited me. I had a delicious simple yet filling meal with a beautiful view. Not the biggest yet great size for families little ones. You can purchase food to feed the animals. Great place and prices are good! Delicious bread, pastries and more!
What a neat place! Friendly staff, RV parking, decent prices. Really enjoyed the stop.
Best Gouda in the nation (not sure how it’s rated) but they enter a competition annually. Great location on the way too and from the foothills and mountains, friendly staff, beautiful grounds and you can buy feed to give to the goats. Bathrooms are well maintained and the grilled cheese sandwich is very tasty.
Cute little shop full of every kind of gouda cheese you could imagine. Nice staff and lots to look at. You can even watch them making.the cheese. Oh and the cheese is awesome.
The staff are very friendly and informative. They have a great selection of cheese and other items in their store. The grounds are gorgeous! They have plenty of picnic tables to enjoy a lunch of their yummy grilled cheese sandwiches. I will visit again.
Nice place to visit. They have grilled cheese sandwiches, and you can feed the goats and sit down and ear your lunch outside in nice surroundings They also sell their own cheeses and other specialty items
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. I always buy a gouda small wheel an a Lil other things an ALWAYS fed the fish an goats an Llama there. It's a wonderful place.
Lovely place to picnic. Clean bathrooms make it a great stop when traveling. I go for the cheese. We usually buy 3 to 4 different kinds to try at home.
I remember this place being super fun as a kid. Took my daughter whose eight. The place is still really cute but the historical and process of the making of the cheese was disappointing. It was a video that you stand and watch. I think if this place let the families be a tad bit more involved or maybe a real person explaining the process it would have been way cooler. They do have animals you can feed but that's about it. Nice place to sit have lunch or read a book and sample some cheese. Friendly customer service at least.
Great place for a pit stop or a family picnic, there is food to enjoy, animals to interact with and beautiful setting overall.
Great cheese shop where you.can see the way that they make there own cheeses and age them. Plus you can have a picnic in there new redon garden picnic area near the koi pond and say hello to the friendly resident cats very friendly staff which are very helpful without over.doing it many many choices of cheese and samples plus cheese curds.
Staff are very helpful and informative. Nice park-like picnic area. And… Gouda Cumin!!
Friendly service and good variety of delicious and fresh cheese. Great ideas for gifts, can't wait to go back!
Loved the place. We'll go back again, has wonderful 🎁 gifts and really nice and helpful people. 😊
Besides obviously having great cheese, they also have some good beverage choices, and I enjoyed their tomato soup greatly. The animals that live outside are all very cute, and pleasant to watch while you eat. The novelty items they sell are also very nice, and moderately priced, though some items are a bit too expensive.
Expensive and not worth it. Friendly staff But the cookies were bland. The turnovers were really fresh and flavorable.
Amazing little place with beautiful property and a pond. Cheese samples were delicious. You can buy cheesecake and other desserts as well as cheese. I purchased whipped lemon honey for my mother and she said it was the best she ever had. They also have goats and Koi fish out back that you can feed. Had a great time here.
Love curds, and they have really good ones. We've enjoyed grilled cheese sandwiches and hot tomato soup here as well. Endless isles of sweet treats baked or candy. Something for everyone including a mini zoo and space to let the kids run.
Fun and cheap little spot! We take my niece and nephew here when they come to visit. Last I checked, they were open on Sundays too. Stop on your way home from the lake! They have clean bathrooms and room for kids to run. The store has cute gifts and candy, and cheese of course. You can peek through a window to see the cheese making process. Order a grilled cheese and tomato soup. Go outside and feed the fish and goats. and take pics for the 'gram!
The cheese really is award winning and delicious! Great place to stop at while on a road trip. They also have animals out back and a very pretty area to eat lunch. Good for families to stop at as well.
This cheese factory is a new favorite!! This specialty shoppe makes gouda cheese and baked breads that are delicious. The gift shop has something for everyone, the animal exhibit is a great place for kids to interact with some eager-to-great goats, sheeps and alpacas. The willows over the pond provide a great photo opportunity and the workers are very friendly, knowledgeable of the history of the business. I will definitely return to this location with my kids and grandkids.
Excellent place to stop. Lots of stuff packed in a little shop. Park like setting outside with ADA accessable restrooms and tables to sit at. You can feed the animals and feed the fish in the pond. The cat is nearly missing an ear and looks pretty mean but don't let that fool you, he's super friendly.
Great grilled cheese, fun outdoor area, and good selection of gifts and items in the shop
Ohhhh where to begin this is a phenomenal attraction just outside of Oakdale. They have an extravagant koi pond, a goat pen in which you can feed pellets from a coin machine. The building itself is rather large, and the cheese theirs so much good cheese to choose from it's hard to make a decision, I haven't found one yet that has let me down. They also carry kitchen utensils and other essentials such as jams and pickles.
A cute shop with some Dutch influence! You get to try a variety of in-house cheeses. We had the chocolate almond and pumpkin spice cheesecake. The cheesecakes are different, they are made from quark. Also purchased some stroopwafels and biscuits. The lady was kind and let us had our brunch with outside food on a picnic table in the garden. They have a friendly cat :)
One of my favorite places in the world! The goats are amazing and so is the food! The fish in the pond swim up to you so you can pet them!
Exceptional cheese. Courteous staff. Many other interesting and tasty products. Picturesque and inviting grounds.
Perfect pit stop! Big grass lawn for kids to play and animal feed is sold in the shop for the goat, sheep, and fish. Their grilled cheese was also tasty and they had a big selection of other cheeses. So glad we stopped here.
Always love to stop there. The cheese is the best. Very cool to watch them making it. And kids love the petting zoo and park atmosphere.
Such a beautiful nice relaxing place to sit and sip a glass of wine and snack on some fresh made cheese. Nice pond with some brightly colored huge Koi fish you can feed..goats you can feed. Very fun place for the kids to roam while the parents relax. The best homemade grilled cheese sandwiches with freshly made gouda cheese.
Best grilled ham and Gouda cheese sandwich I ever had. Always drove by and never had time to stop. Great outside dining area too Coy ponds and Willow trees Good place to pick up last minute wine and cheese gifts 😁
This place is wonderful. If you can get it before it is gone the raisin bread is the best all the bread is really good. They make great grilled cheese you can eat with your family by the pond and feed the fish. There is also other animals to feed. Just a great place to be with great cheese, bread, and sandwiches
Cute little place with cheeses, jellies, sauces and some baked goods. The people are very nice. There's a cute outdoor area where you can have a picnic and see some farm animals (sheep, goats, alpacas and chickens). It's very peaceful. Try the cheese curds! They squeak when you eat them.
Really fun find in Oakdale! Great place for families to spend time together. You can feed the koi, goats, sheep and llamas. The cute shop sells cheese made there as well as grilled cheese, home decor, gifts and delicious cheesecakes. Prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend checking it out.
This place is worth the stop. Very friendly staff, great little store front and so many selections of cheeses. They are low key so its easy to pop in, grab what you need and go. They also have some very uncommon and high quality shop items and novelties that are worth a grab. Btw, grab a grilled cheese!!!!
Amazing classic cheese and fresh baked bread. Best cheese i have ever tasted. Ridiculously delicious
What an amazingly sweet place! They specialize in Gouda and have all types including black pepper, aged, smoked, cumin and Mediterranean, but that's not an exhaustive list. They also make their own bread and cheesecake! They offer lunch of tomato soup and grilled gouda, with or without ham. I had never been there and the nicest lady, who worked the register, was so kind and helpful. I will absolutely be returning!
Variety of Gouda Cheeses and others. Great little stop for yummy sandwiches and cheeses. Also great little property for a stroll with kids to see farm animals and coy pond.
When passing through Oakdale, CA make sure to stop by this amazing place. We love the setting, their grilled cheese and the people that work there are amazing. They are open 7 days a week.
A must stop by for family with small kids. Amazing food, nice outdoor setting, friendly staff. Let’s you pet and feed their farm animals. Clean restrooms.
Our first time in Oakdale and we loved this hard to miss little gem. This is a cute and great place to take a breather and stretch out those legs. Baby girl loved the chicken and looking at the fish in the pond. Definitely stop inside the market to get some snacks and try their delicious Gouda cheese.
Great place to stop for a gouda grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup. There are lots of picnic tables around the porch and lawn area. You can also pick up local cheeses and other delicacies.
This was a great stop on our day trip. Room to stretch our legs and super friendly staff. The Cumin Gouda and chocolate almond cheesecake were delicious... everyone enjoyed! I will get a hot grilled cheese next time because this will definitely be a regular stop when we're on the road!
Farm fresh cheese for sale. Grill cheese or grill ham and cheese. Tomatoe soup. Lovely setting,picnic tables, goats to feed. Fun family spot.
Large selection of cheese. Great prices. Very friendly staff. They had a nice selection of pies. A variety of things to snack eat or knick-knacks.
Such a lovely place!! Delicious Gouda grilled cheese that is made to order super fresh. Enjoy in the lovely picnic area that is lush with roses, and the sweetest most gentle goats that love to be petted!
This is a great place for kids to play outside and say hi to the farm animals. Picnic tables around the pond are perfect for enjoying a hot grilled cheese sandwich. Our favorite item to bring home is a bag of cheese curds.
A peaceful little piece of tranquility. Delicious treats perfect for a small snack or a giant charcuterie spread! The lovely grounds and delightful grilled cheese sandwiches will make for wonderful family friendly memories.
This place is spectacular to say the least. Lots for the family to do like feeding the fish in the pond, feeding the goats and alpacas. It's a pleasant oasis with plenty of seating under huge shade trees. The cheese is some of the best I've ever had and you can also watch it being made there. The employees are really nice and courteous always with a smile on their faces.
Cute little store with cheese to purchase. Not a lot of choices on the menu but I was there for the cheese. :) Lovely out door area with tables in the shade. I had a grilled cheese sandwich and lemon aid. A very relaxing break. They do have RV parking
I love Gouda so can't wait to try the cheese. Their raisin cinnamon bread is really good and sells out fast so get there early. Cone try their grill cheese for $4.25 or ham & cheese for $4.75.
Specialized Gouda cheese, very good, you can also purchase selected meats and breads to make a small picnic. Outside sitting area is very nice with picnic tables and shade trees with green grass surrounding the area. And best of all they are pet friendly. What's striking about the establishment, is how pleasant it is... Employees are knowledgeable and ready to help...
This place is so cool. The land is beautiful out back and the service is great. This is the place you definitely want to come to for a cheese experience if you want want cheese 🧀 they aren't doing cheese testing because of COVID but it's still a beautiful place!
Cheese curds are delicious and squeaky. Grilled cheese Sammy is good... Recommend getting the ham too.
Smoked Gouda cheese, gotta have it! Lots of other treats as well. Feeding the pond fish and barn yard animals is always fun.
I've only visited 2 times. Everything I've purchased was great! A fun little shop with lots more to offer than cheese. The aged Gouda is by far my favorite!!
While driving through on our way from Yosemite, I saw this place and it sparked my curiosity so we stopped. I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t know what Gouda cheese was so I was offered a sample. I can’t believe II haven’t had this before now. I got the grilled cheese and a bowl of soup and it was easily the best I’ve had. The staff was super friendly and the grounds are well kept. If you’re in the area, you should stop by.
Love coming here. Buying a few dutch things we needed of course that included cheese!!! We got a couple of gouda sandwiches and ate them outside, was such a nice day just enjoying the fresh air and the view of the animals and the trees with a fish pond.
Super nice staff and the cheese is incredible. All flavors are really so good. Nice store and staff were really helpful and informative.
