About Artisan Cheesemaking
Wisconsin's reputation as a leader in cheesemaking innovation and artistry is strikingly apparent in the growth of new specialty and artisan cheeses. Distinctive in technique, specialty cheese has grown to 22 percent of the state's total production. This market segment includes artisan dairy – handmade products made in small batches – as well as farmstead dairy – products made on the farm from milk produced by cows on that farm. America's Dairyland is experiencing a true cheesemaking renaissance!
