If you’re planning a road trip this summer, rest assured all roads in America’s Dairyland lead to Wisconsin Cheese. In fact, the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (WMMB) has mapped out more than 120 tasty points of interest across Wisconsin with the recently updated “A Travelers Guide to America’s Dairyland” – a must-have for cheese enthusiasts.
The colorful, quirky fold-out map highlights cheesemakers and retail stores across the state. Full of nostalgic historical tidbits and photos, the map is free and can be requested or downloaded from WMMB's website, http://www.EatWisconsinCheese.com/Wisconsin/travelers_guide.aspx.
The map includes information about specialty cheese shops and cheesemaking facilities, where you can meet many of the nation’s most awarded cheesemakers, tour their "workshops" and sample some of Wisconsin’s best products. En route you’ll meet families committed to the same time-tested values of pride and craftsmanship that have existed for generations. Take a detour to Monroe, the only place in the United States that still produces famously pungent Limburger. Stop for a visit at the newly remodeled 24,000-foot Mars Cheese Castle along I-94 between Chicago and Milwaukee. Or, satisfy your trivia curiosity by visiting Colby, the town where the well-known Wisconsin original cheese was born in 1874.
The map’s vintage look reflects Wisconsin’s 160 years of tradition in crafting the more than 600 varieties, types and styles of world-renowned cheese, including dozens of classics, historic favorites and Wisconsin originals, such as Uplands Pleasant Ridge Reserve and Roelli Dunbarton Blue.
