A cheese factory as a destination? Turns out the Loleta Cheese Factory is one of the most popular tourist attractions on the North Coast, and when you experience it for yourself you’ll understand why. Not only will one taste of their award-winning artisan cheese demonstrate why this is where they put the “art” in artisan, but visitors will be delighted by the award-winning garden designed by Ryan Stafnes, the quaint country store, the extraordinary Queso Kings gourmet grilled cheese bar, and the opportunity to observe the cheesemaking process as it takes place in the glass encased open-vat factory.
This quaint factory produces an amazing 500,000 pounds of cheese each year. They use handmade recipes and produce their cheese in small batches from the highest quality ingredients only. Loleta Cheese Factory is a small family-run business dedicated to the production of premium quality natural cheeses, and has been family-owned since 1982. It is open daily from 9am to 5pm.
