Welcome to the Wisconsin Cheese Shop!

Our cooperative was established back in 1910 by a group of local family farmers in order to establish a consistent, trustworthy market for their milk. Maple Leaf is still locally farmer-owned, and some of our families are now in their second and third generation with us! Cooperative ventures such as ours, were the foundation upon which so much of Wisconsin’s present day cheese heritage was built. I know you will enjoy our cheese. We personally guarantee it.

Edelweiss Creamery is a small artisan cheese factory employing state-of-the-art technology along side the stride and true traditional method of cheesemaking. It was established in 1873 and is still at the same location. As a result, our cheese brings you back to a time when the quality and the flavor was king! We also have a grass based line of natural cheeses. We are very proud to do our part for sustainable agriculture; the unequaled taste of this cheese is a must for the serious cheese lover!

The Edelweiss Emmentaler cheese is made using raw milk and a traditional Swiss copper vat. The wheels weigh about 180 lbs. It's like a little bit of Switzerland right here in Monticello, Wisconsin.
