We took off early on a beautiful June morning and headed to our first stop: Chalet Cheese Co-op in Monroe. Chalet is owned by farmers of 21 farms — all from Green County — and dates back to 1885. The creamery has 24 employees and eight master cheese makers.
If there is one thing everyone knows about Wisconsin it’s that there is a lot of cheese in this state — and that we eat a lot of cheese. So as a Wisconsinite through and through, I am, of course, mildly obsessed with cheese. I love just about all types, and there is always something new to try.
· Colby cheese comes from … wait for it … Colby, Wisconsin.
