Newly created tourism brochure puts

Green County cheese on the map

Jan. 26, 2012 | 0 comments

Green County Tourism has created a new brochure to help travelers in their journey to discover this southern Wisconsin county's best-known product - cheese.

The Cheese Lover's Guide to Green County Wisconsin provides just enough history to set the stage for how and why the area became famous for cheese. More importantly, it raises the profile of local cheesemaking as an important element of Green County's vibrant local agricultural economy.

A map within the fold-out brochure pinpoints cheese factories where visitors can go to sample and purchase cheese, or to see it being made. Profiles for each factory location include historical highlights, varieties produced and information on the cheesemakers themselves.

The map also shows retail outlets offering large selections of iocally made cheese. Displayed around the map are colorful cheese labels illustrating the brands and varieties produced in Green County.

A large panel of the brochure is dedicated to discovering the roots of cheesemaking. Mentions include the National Historic Cheesemaking Center and Imobersteg Farmstead Factory in Monroe, the cheese factory replica at the Swiss Historical Village in New Glarus, and the display dedicated to cheese and butter production at the Brodhead Depot Museum.

For more information call Noreen Rueckert, Green County Tourism Director, at 608-328-1838, or via email at tourism@greencounty.org.
