Grassland Dairy Products, Inc.
During the 19th century in the Swiss Alps on Mt. Horber, the Wüthrich family ranged a herd of dairy cattle and made cheese. In 1893, Samuel and Katharina Wüthrich immigrated to Wisconsin to pursue the American Dream. With them, they brought the family tradition of cheese making. Samuel and Katharina’s son, John S., worked alongside his father making cheese. In 1904, a group of farmers began a creamery outside of the Greenwood Township, and Grassland Dairy Products, Inc. was born. John S. served as the general manager, making cheese in the morning, and picking up cream from neighbors and hand-churning it into butter in the afternoon. Grassland is proud to provide a wide range of dairy products to this day, and proudly remains one of the leading family-owned butter manufacturers in the world.
