-Milwaukee: 2 hours, 2 minutes
Co-owners and college sweethearts, Tony and Julie Hook, operate in the heart of charming little Mineral Point, WI, an hour from the bustling college town of Madison. They have perfected their craft through nearly five decades, with plenty of awards to show for it.
During our factory visit, Tony Hook described the process of making blue cheese while holding two large molds used to craft it. He then invited us to sample ultra-fresh and luscious cheddar cheese varieties, alongside Colby and specialty cheeses.
This is a must-do visit for cheese loving travelers in Wisconsin. Check for current hours and tour availability during the pandemic.
Please note: As a writer associated with the travel industry, I received a complimentary tour and samples for the purpose of this review. While it has not influenced this post, I wish to disclose all potential conflicts of interest.
