Why Wisconsin gouda is great
Here in Wisconsin, we produce goudas that will give any Dutch cheesemaker a run for their wooden shoes. We've been making gouda for more than 100 years – which, okay, is not quite as long as the 900 years the Dutch have been at it, but it's plenty of time to get it right, and boy do we do it well.
Our passion for cheese has created a cheesemaking culture that's dedicated to just one thing: making the tastiest, most award-winning, highest-quality cheese on this planet, and any other planet while we're at it. (Take that, E.T. cheesemakers.) And if you think that's just the 24-month aged gouda talking, get a load of this: our cheesemakers have won more awards than any other state in the nation or country on earth -- including a gouda that recently won the Best Cheese in America award.
That's what happens in a state where 90% of our milk goes to make cheese. Where we produce twice as many types and varieties of cheese than any other state, and where we have the only Master Cheesemaker program in the world outside of Switzerland.
That's what happens in Wisconsin. Welcome to the state of cheese. It's gouda to meet you.
