Wisconsin Cheese

As the nation’s top cheese producer, Wisconsin is home to classic, specialty and artisan cheesemaking. The state’s 1,200 cheesemakers, many of whom are third- and fourth-generation, continue to pass on old-world traditions while adopting modern methods in cheesemaking craftsmanship. It’s no wonder Wisconsin Cheese wins more awards than any U.S. state or nation in the world. Welcome to America’s Dairyland.
