Klein River cheese factory on a Sunday

On our way out of Stanford, we popped into the Klein Rivier cheese factory to buy some cheese. The shop is closed on Sundays, but the picnic venue is not and you can buy a picnic basket or put together your own selection from a huge choice available and then enjoy it in their garden picnic area. It is a great place to take children
The Cheese Shop and deli
The petting zoo has lots of friendly animals, but don't push them too far!
Including some very noisy but enthusiastic geese, who rush to anyone offering bread. You can buy packets of bread to feed them
These children loved feeding the mother hen with her huge brood of chicks
Scooters to play on
Even a wigwam shower which, on this very hot Sunday, was much enjoyed. In the background, the play park with lots of different elements to play on. It's free to picnickers
The picnic menu
Inside the picnic shop, in addition to the published menu, you can take a basket and fill it with your own selection
Each item has a price. There is an enormous selection of things to choose from
We bought some cheese to take home. The prices on the tags are for the portioned cheeses below
Wine and other beverages can be purchased for your picnic

You can enjoy the shade on the verandah or sit under the trees on the lawn. There are blankets provided
