Wisconsin: home of world champion parmesan cheese
Check out this cheese fact: In 2018, a Wisconsin cheesemaker took home the prize for the world's best parmesan cheese. That means, with all due respect to our Italian cheesemaking friends, Wisconsin rules.
Defying expectations with dang good cheese – that's what Wisconsin cheesemakers have been doing for 175 years. Plain and simple, we want to make the best cheese in the world. That's why 90% of the milk in our state goes to cheese production, and why we make more varieties, types, and styles of cheese than anywhere else in America. It's why we're home to the only Master Cheesemaker program in the world outside Switzerland, and why we've won more awards for our cheese than any other state or country on earth.
So next time you're shopping for parmesan for your eggplant lasagna, your summer salad, or your wine and cheese party, try a homegrown wedge of parmesan from Wisconsin – the state of cheese.
