that Wisconsin produces cheese – a lot of it

On our way back from another trip our client in Neenah, Wisconsin, we did not the usual one, but two cheese-stops. After grabbing beers and a grilled cheese at the Mars Cheese Castle, we visited Tim and Tom’s. This place, which is half of a cheese shop/antique store combo, sells all sorts of cheeses and almost feels like a little museum. So after these two stops and with another hour or so to go before arriving back in Chicago, I obviously had to do some research on why Wisconsin is known at the state of cheese. Well, I didn’t have to dig deep: this site taught me that Wisconsin makes over a quarter of ALL THE CHEESE in the U.S. Incredible.

Plus, they sell amazing hats.
