Vern and Edith Knoespel started Vern's Cheese on March 1, 1964. They had one truck, rented cooler space, and ran the wholesale business out of their home. In 1967, they purchased a small warehouse in rural Chilton. With four small children, they would pack up the family car and deliver orders to customers. During the Christmas season, gift boxes would be displayed and sold from their front porch. Fast forward to today, Vern's features a large variety of products including Wisconsin cheese, cheese curds, string cheese, goat cheese, glass bottled milk, butter products, specialty foods, meat products, candy and many gift items. Give their Chilton specialty store a visit, where you'll find some dream combinations to be had including plenty of Wisconsin wines and craft beer to pair up with your Wisconsin cheese!
