Wisconsin is where makers become Masters.

Our Master Cheesemaker program is one of only two in the world, so it's no wonder every Master in America has called Wisconsin home.

...but sometimes we'll toot our own (alpen)horns.

It's a good thing the 5,552 awards (and counting) our cheesemakers have won speak for themselves.

We've been making cheese since before Wisconsin was even a state.

Our cheesemaking heritage goes back more than 175 years combining art and science in a tradition so rich you can taste it. 


We do more flavors and varieties of cheese than anywhere else on Earth, by pushing the boundaries of what cheese can and should be.
