Discover the new generation of farmers and cheesemakers who give Wisconsin its reputation for the best milk and specialty cheeses in the country.
Wisconsin's reputation as a leader in cheesemaking innovation and artistry is strikingly apparent in the growth of new specialty and artisan cheeses. Distinctive in technique, specialty cheese has grown to 16 percent of the state's total production. This market segment includes artisan dairy handmade products made in small batches as well as farmstead dairy products made on the farm from milk produced by cows on that farm.
