“Cheeseheads: The Documentary” Movie Trailer

Introducing (well it’s been on Youtube for a week) the “Cheeseheads: The Documentary” Movie Trailer, affectionately titled “A Brief History Of Wisconsin”.  It’s a lot of fun, says many great things about Wisconsin, and poses the deeper question of what exactly a Cheesehead is.  Of course I leave you hanging, but that’s the whole point of … Continue reading

Sheep Lovers Make Great Cheese Too

I ran in to Larry Meisegeier at the Wisconsin Artisan Cheese Festival in Madison last winter and was finally able to check out the Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative in Weyerhauser.  He also took me out to one of his co-op member farms where I got to see how it all begins.  Frankly, it’s exactly the same … Continue reading

Ellsworth is, of course, the cheese curd capital of Wisconsin, and frankly, the world.  I covered how cheese curds are made at their factory for the documentary, and decided I had to check out the Ellsworth Cheese Curd Festival to see just how much people love them.  They do, even having them on their pizzas, … Continue reading

Cheese Underground: Unglaciated Cheese

Colby From Colby Is The Best Colby

It was a dreary day when I went to Colby, but it is the birthplace of Colby cheese, so it deserves some props.  Colby is always best when it is Longhorn style (in my opinion).  The town, a quant little village in the middle of the state, was cozy and pleasant, with reminders here and … Continue reading

Where Antiques & Cheese Come Together

Tim and Tom’s Cheese shop is located just outside of Kenosha, right off the freeway a few miles away from Mars Cheese Castle, but it’s a world of difference from the Castle filled with cheese because it also offers up an awesome variety of antiques and unique items for sale.  Lots of collectables, old liscense … Continue reading
