Happened to stop in, per my usual whenever I spot a cheese shop while traveling Wisconsin, and found the quant Colonial Cheese House in Wautoma.  Hard to miss what with the beautiful ceramic cows out front.  Of course what I really dug about the place, besides the cheese, was the Cheesehead memorabilia for sale, including … Continue reading
