  • Volunteers (ex-teachers) ran the place and we enjoyed all it had to offer. Even received a free sample of cheese, but that was a one of a kind gesture. Learn history of cheese in Green County...

  • Being from New England I thought I knew all there was to cheese making…since Vermont is like a second home. I was wrong…our tour guide Mark (a professor emeritus) was a local expert on diary farming and cheese making. His unique perspective of growing up on a dairy farm with a cheese making grandfather gave the tour an added level of detail to the history of cheese making. After peaking our interest in how the local cheeses are made he suggested a local cheese store and tavern that hit the spot. With three kids that range in ages from 11 to 17, it was a great family experience. During our road trip traveling from Madison to Ohio the National Historic Cheese Making Center was WELL WORTH the price of admission.
  • This place is well worth a visit if you have any interest in cheese at all (and even if you don't!). The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and the tour is really interesting. Monroe itself is also nice to visit, the main square is pretty and there are some v good cheese shops around.
