Wisconsin: the home of specialty cheese
In Wisconsin, almost one-half of the cheese made in Wisconsin is specialty cheese. And when you consider that Wisconsin makes 3.42 billion pounds of cheese a year, well, that's a mountain of specialty cheese.
It all comes down to the pioneering spirit that brought so many cheesemakers to Wisconsin in the first place. They arrived with little more than the recipes from their homeland in their pockets, seeking a better life, and in the process, they invented new and better ways of making cheese.
Today, our 1,200 licensed cheesemakers have the same passion for new horizons in flavor and texture, and they're constantly innovating new varieties of specialty cheese.
So, next time you want to take a taste adventure of your own, look for a specialty cheese with the Proudly Wisconsin Cheese ™ badge on the label. And fasten your seatbelts, because it's going to be a flavorful ride.
