The Home of the True Cheeseheads

Discover the meaning behind the local nickname at Clock Shadow Creamery, an urban cheese factory that brings some of rural Wisconsin into the city. You can take a tour of the factory with your family or classroom, and learn about the history of the art of cheese making along with enjoying some fresh samples. Tour guides take you through the process with some interesting facts and secrets about everyone's favorite fermented curd.

The lush fields of the surrounding countryside of Wisconsin are home to some fat and happy cows and high-quality dairy products that have made cheese a permanent part of the state's economic landscape. The factory also has a retail outlet where you can buy local specialties like cheddar and fresh Mexican-style cheese.
