Wisconsin isn't called "America's Dairyland" for nothing. Not only does it look more responsible on a license plate than "Our state can out-eat and out-drink and out-party your state," it illustrates the value dairy has to Wisconsin. Turns out a pretty hefty percentage of the state's economy depends on cows, with the milk they produce and, in turn, the cheese that gets produced from that.
Now, we know full well that Wisconsin is famous for quality, award-winning cheeses. But did you ever wonder how much effort goes into making it so? In this episode, I get to explore the relentless push to be the best on Discover Wisconsin this weekend. From how tricky it is to become a Master Cheesemaker (you know, vs. just being a regular cheesemaker) to what it takes to show, place, or win in national and world cheese competitions, we explore it all. Watch it below, or on Discover Wisconsin this weekend!
