Owned and operated by the Cook family, Carr Valley Cheese Company is over one-hundred years old. Nestled amongst the rolling hills and lush pastures of central Wisconsin, Carr Valley Cheese remains one of Wisconsin's traditional cheese plants, famous for making cheese the old-fashioned way.
Carr Valley Cheese is one of America's finest specialty cheese plants. From traditional classics like expertly aged Cheddar Cheese to award-winning American Originals like Cocoa Cardona and Gran Canaria, our skilled cheesemakers turn milk delivered fresh from local dairy farms into more than 100 delicious cheese varieties.
Our family's passion for cheesemaking excellence runs deep. Today, fourth-generation owner Sid Cook is one of a small handful of certified Master Cheesemakers in the United States. It's a distinction awarded only to veteran Wisconsin craftsmen who complete a rigorous 15-year advanced training and education program.
In the past three years alone, Carr Valley cheeses have won more than 60 top awards in U.S. and international competitions. Many of these have been won by Sid's one-of-a-kind American Originals - artisan cheeses you won't find made anywhere else in the world.
For more than 100 years, we've built our business on a unique blend of old-world craftsmanship and creative cheesemaking innovation. We think it's a combination you're going to love!
