Buyers - General Information
Wisconsin's 150 years of dedication to the craft of dairying is especially apparent today with the rising popularity and variety of artisan and farmstead dairy products being made here. Literally hundreds of Wisconsin farms have combined organic farming and pasture-grazing with a passion for handcrafting the finest, freshest dairy products.
Of particular note are the number of artisan and farmstead cheeses made in the state - more than any other area in the nation. The time and care these cheeses take to plan and process is truly remarkable. In most cases, the planning begins with the cows, sheep or goats, the grasses they graze upon and the way those grasses are raised. Then, once the actual cheesemaking begins, there is careful handwork and innovative combination of milk and natural ingredients that yield unique, wonderful cheese flavors....flavors that only come from Wisconsin.
We hope you will have an opportunity to purchase, serve and enjoy some of the very special dairy products listed on this website. They and the companies who make them prove once again, that Wisconsin truly is America's Dairyland.
