Edelweiss Cheese Opens in Verona, WI
Verona, Wisconsin, is host to a new shop featuring what the Badger State does best - cheese and beer. Edelweiss Cheese is the creation of Bruce and Kathy Workman, who planned on opening a shop after they closed the retail side of their Edelweiss Creamery.
The Workmans decided to open Edelweiss Cheese Authentic Wisconsin after they closed the retail portion of Edelweiss Creamery in Monticello, where Bruce makes cow's milk cheeses like havarti, butterkase and gouda.
"We talked about it for three years," Kathy said. A former teacher in Verona, she retired in 2011 and the time seemed right to open a shop.
