Our facility is located in Door County, Wisconsin. Founded by Master Cheesemaker Mike Brennenstuhl, in 2017, Door Artisan Cheese makes both traditional Wisconsin cheeses and original-recipe creations.

Door Artisan Cheese partners exclusively for milk with Red Barn Family Farms in Appleton, Wis., a co-op group of small family dairy farms that are certified by the American Humane Association. Our mindset of “great milk makes great cheese” is the reason we use this quality resource in the production cheese.
