Wisconsin’s Master Cheesemaker program is the only one of its kind outside of Europe.  To become a certified Master Cheesemaker, one must first be need to have possessed a cheesemaker’s license in Wisconsin for at least 10 years, and also reside in Wisconsin to be accepted into the program.  Once accepted, these cheesemakers undergo a rigorous three-year course study and practical apprenticeship administered by the Center for Dairy Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  

All these cheeses are packaged in a Wisconsin-made wooden box.  The Master Cheesemaker Collection includes 3 ¾ pounds of cheese.
