Chalet Cheese Cooperative

N4858 Hwy N
Monroe, WI 53566
Founded in 1885 by five dairy farmers, Chalet Cheese Cooperative continues to flourish as a co-operative, owned and operated by its 14 members who are the sole suppliers of milk. They specialize in the making of limburger, brick, baby swiss, and swiss, and their smoked versions, with an emphasis on top quality and true workmanship. Fun fact: the folks at Chalet are the only producers of limburger in the United States, and their German brick with a limburger smear underscores their spirit for innovation. The quality of Chalet's baby swiss, regular swiss, smoked baby swiss and smoked swiss cheeses are recognized often, winning numerous (114!) awards in competitions from the U.S. Championship Cheese Contest to the World Championship Cheese Contest.

From there, Jamie has continued alongside Master Cheesemaker Myron Olson at Chalet Cheese Cooperative––the only U.S. plant that produces limburger cheese.
