Van Gaalen Cheese Factory


Our farm is situated at the foot of the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains and we are open six days a week from 8h00 to 17h00. We are closed on Tuesdays.
We have a restaurant and full function facilities for weddings, corporate functions and any kind of festive occasion. Tailor made proposals can be arranged like lunches for tour groups, a picnic and wine tasting.
Besides our restaurant we can offer you a lovely relaxing picnic on the banks of the Skeerpoort River on our farm. The picnic hampers must be booked at least a day in advance.
Any quantity of cheese can be bought at the farm shop, as well as a selection of wine, preserves, souvenirs, sweets, odds and ends.
In our ‘Milk cottages’ we offer accommodation for overnight visitors
In our garden restaurant one can enjoy mostly ‘cheesy’ food and salads from our a la carte menu. Some typical Dutch dishes like ‘kroketten’ are on the menu too. Children are welcome. Our jungle gym and farm animals entertain young and old.
