Muenster: a homegrown Wisconsin cheese makes good
Muenster is a true Wisconsin original, first made by French immigrants in in the late 1800s. So, picking Wisconsin-made muenster cheese is kind of no-brainer.
But if you need a little extra incentive, consider this: Wisconsin is pretty much the Mecca of cheesemaking when it comes to muenster and practically every other cheese. We are home to only one of two Master Cheesemaker programs in the world (the Swiss have the other one), which means every master cheesemaker in America has called Wisconsin home at some point. As a state, we pour almost all our milk into cheese, and we produce twice as many varieties, types, and styles of cheese than any other state. And if that's not enough to turn your head north (to Wisconsin), just take a gander at the 5,552 awards we've one for cheese – more than anyone, any state, any country in the world. That includes 125 awards for our own Wisconsin muenster.
That's what happens when a whole state dreams in cheese. And we and muenster invite you to dream along with us.
