A Photo Tour Of Uplands Cheese Company
Uplands Cheese Company is one of the most revered cheesemakers in Wisconsin, crafting cult favorites Rush Creek Reserve and Pleasant Ridge Reserve. The cheesemakers at Uplands use milk only from their own cows, as they told Amy Cavanaugh of Chicagoist during her recent visit. For more photos of Amy's visit, click through below.
Hatch told us that while Wisconsin cheesemakers typically pooled milk from a number of farms, Uplands makes cheese with milk from its own cows. The cows rotate the fields they graze in, which is better for the cow and easier for the farmer, since the animals harvest their own feed and spread manure. The cows are milked May through October.
