Heini’s offers complimentary samples of more than 70 types of cheese with more than half made in the region with milk from local Amish dairy farms. Guests can enjoy the gift shop, fudge shop and the retail store as well as watch a cheese making video
Since 1935, Heini’s Cheese Chalet has been making some of the finest cheese in the region using recipes that travelled all the way from Switzerland by way of the Dauwalder family who still own the business today.
Heini’s offers their family’s version of traditional Swiss cheese, an award-winning favorite but also features unique varieties made from raw, pastured milk as well as yogurt cultures, which produces a lactose free cheese. There are savory cheeses, soft cheeses and even dessert cheeses. With so many varieties to choose from, Heini’s allows customers to sample them all in their Bunker Hill retail shop that highlights an array of other local and regional products.
Heini’s believes their cheeses are best served at room temperature where their flavor and texture are at their best. Heini’s cheese is free of artificial growth hormones and is made from all natural ingredients.
The milk in Heini’s cheese is still delivered by dairy farmers in old-fashioned milk cans just as they did in year’s past. The Dauwalder family has formed lasting relationships with the farmers in the region and their consistently good cheese is the result of high quality milk produced on small family farms.
Heini’s serves customers all over the nation and invites you to stop in when you visit the picturesque region that is Ohio’s Amish Country.

Go early to hear how milk is brought in from local farmers and made there! We love all the cheese samples and stop whenever we are in Holmes Co.
