“The manufacturer of world-famous Maytag Blue Cheese”

Acclaimed by cheese experts and food editors as America's finest blue cheese, Maytag Blue Cheese ranks among the world's great cheeses. On October 11, 1941, the first wheels of Maytag Blue Cheese were formed and put to age in our caves. Not much has changed since then, although our truck is newer and our cheesemakers are older! Today, we still make each wheel by hand, aging it in our caves twice as long as most other blue cheeses. After all, why change a good thing?

Although it was not the farm/cheese making tour we were hoping for, this was a pleasant stop. We got a tour of the admin office and watched a 2 min movie on cheese making followed by a few cheese samples.

Want a beautiful place to see a working farm? Rolling hills, awesome cheese. You will bump into many wonderful folks who run the farm. Sit under a shade tree and carpe diem!
