The story of Widmer's Cheese begins over 70 years ago, when our founder, John O. Widmer, left Switzerland to come to America. He choose to settle in one of the most famous cheese producing regions of the world, Dodge County Wisconsin. As did many Swiss immigrants, John O. Widmer became a cheese maker. He worked in various cheese factories as an apprentice before settling in Theresa Wisconsin in 1922.
His theory was quality first, and he consistently strove to produce a better product. He passed on his methods to his three sons John, Ralph and Jim who have since retired, and passed on the family business and tradition to Joe Widmer.
Embracing the manufacturing techniques which have been handed down through generations of cheese makers, Widmer's Cheese Cellars offers a Wisconsin original, Wisconsin Brick cheese, a cheese of unsurpassed distinction. Much like a limited edition book or lithograph, Widmer Brick is hand-crafted in small batches to ensure quality. Brick's earthy, sweet flavor and its slice ability make it not only delicious, but easy to use as a table cheese or as an ingredient.
