Why Wisconsin loves the blues
While some people only peg Wisconsin for cheddar, when it comes cheese, we love blue, too.
Blue cheese is a real cheesemaker's cheese, and we're a state full of master cheesemakers. We're even home to one of only two Master Cheesemaker programs in the world (the other one's in Switzerland), and we're the only state where you have to have a license to make cheese. That's because, when it comes to cheese, we are all in. It's why we've won more awards for cheese than any other place on earth, and why our 1200 cheesemakers produce more than 600 different varieties, types, and styles of cheese.
So, the next time you're shopping for blue cheese – maybe a mild Dumbarton Blue, a piney quintuple cream blue, or a hearty gorgonzola – look for the Proudly Wisconsin Cheese label on the package. We know you'll thank us later.
