Wisconsin Cheese Talk


Welcome to Wisconsin Cheese Talk, the Wisconsin Cheese Blog—a place to share and express Wisconsin’s unique cheesemaking heritage and your Wisconsin Cheese pride.

June Dairy Month

Today, third- and fourth-generation cheesemakers are continuing old-world traditions and setting new standards in cheesemaking craftsmanship and artistry. The state’s 1,200 cheesemakers produce more than 600 varieties, types, and styles of cheese, all made under the most stringent state standards for safety, grading, and quality. In fact, Wisconsin was the first state to grade cheese for quality and the only state with an advanced training program to help cheesemakers become truly masters of their craft. It’s no wonder Wisconsin Cheese wins more awards than any U.S. state or nation in the world.
