Tony and Julie Hook have been making artisan cheddar, blue cheese, world champion colby and many other varieties for over 45 years. Established in 1976, Hook's Cheese Company is a family owned and operated business located in the historic "Shake Rag" district of scenic Mineral Point, Wisconsin. Their cheese is aged in curing caves at just the right temperature and humidity for a slow-curing process that allows cheeses to age to perfection. Every few months, each batch is taste tested to ensure that only the cheeses of the highest quality are aged as evidenced by their two, three, four, five, six and seven year aged cheddars, as well as their highly acclaimed ten year sharp cheddar, which won an ACS first place in 2006! Hook's also makes a variety of other cow, sheep and goat milk cheeses so don't stop at the cheddar. (One cheese, born in 2014, is called Triple Play and uses all three milks (cow, sheep, goat), and offers flavor notes of baby swiss, gouda and havarti).
