In the farm shop all of our cheeses are available for tasting and sale. You are free to wander around the farm, see the animals and enjoy the scenery. You can watch the cheese being made through the viewing windows and take a self-guided tour through the cheesemaking process. In the Summer they offer a delicious lunch menu! Otherwise, i highly recommend picking up picnic supplies on your way to the beaches in the South end.

Watch for sea lions and killer whales out in the sea, and mink and river otter cavorting along the shoreline. Tidal pools are filled with a brightly-coloured world of crab, mussel, limpet, oyster, sculpin, starfish and more.
