Making Cheese in Arena and Rudolph

Cheese is one Wisconsin‘s biggest industries, and produces award-winning cheese. We have visited two places that make and sell cheese. On 10-7-11 we visited Arena Cheese in Arena. We HAD to get our picture with the mouse. I had my tripod since we had taken the “Hyde Mill in Fall” picture just before coming here.

We went in and watched the cheese makers at work through the windows. Here they are making  cheese curds, a favorite Wisconsin snack. Here is a bag of curds made that very morning, fresh and squeaky!

On July 9, 2012 we paid a visit to Rudolph, WI to Wisconsin Dairy State Cheese Company. They have a covered eating area outside, the store also has an ice cream shop.

They were salting a large vat of cheese when we arrived.

We went to the ice cream shop, a friendly place


The Master Cheesemaker Mike Moran came in and Al posed for a picture with him.  What an honor!
