Wisconsin hearts havarti
Denmark might be the birthplace of havarti, but Wisconsin has gone whole hog on this smooth and supple beauty. Interesting cheese fact: at the US Cheese Championships in 2015, the top five havarti entries all came from Wisconsin.
And while that might surprise some, here in Wisconsin, we take that kind of cheesy domination in stride. We've been making cheese for 175 years, after all, we've gotten dang good at it. Consider the sheer volume of cheese that comes from Wisconsin – our 1,200 cheesemakers make more flavors, varieties, and styles of cheese than anywhere else on earth. What about quality, you ask? We've also taken home more awards than state or country on the planet. So, quality? You betcha.
It's no wonder, then, that havarti has found a home in Wisconsin. When a whole state dreams in cheese, havarti is bound to play a starring role.
