For more than 160 years, cheesemaking in Wisconsin has been a central part of the state’s cultural identity. As the nation’s leader in cheese production, Wisconsin is known for the quality and diversity of its cheeses, as well as for its rich cheesemaking heritage. Today, because consumers are demanding more unique, distinctively flavored cheeses, specialty cheeses are the fastest-growing category in Wisconsin. For the cheesemaker, specialty products are a means both to strengthen margins and to create signature products that set them apart.
