You're invited to enjoy "Spring on the Farm" at Heritage Farm.
Kicking off the season is the second presentation of the series “Our Dairy Past”.
This year, Heritage Farm will be covering Krohn’s, a local dairy plant that has been in existence since 1892 and operated for 100 years at the same location in Kewaunee County. Their roots in cheese making began with making cheddar cheese before making a bold move in the mozzarella market with great success.
The factory is still in operation; however, it was sold to Weyauwega in 2000. In 2003, the name was changed to Trega, and then purchased by Agropur in 2008. Agropur is the only cheese plant operating in Kewaunee County out of as many as 64 at its heyday.
The Krohn’s cheese store is still operated at the plant, selling a variety of cheeses along with their award –winning products they have been known for.
The presentation will also look at some of the larger cheese plants in northeastern Wisconsin, such as Satori, Saputo, Belgioioso, along with others in the area.
In addition, we will explore the history of Wisconsin as the cheese capital of the world.
Finally, we will discuss our own New Year’s Eve tradition in Northeastern Wisconsin, the Cheese Drop in Plymouth.
Join us at Heritage Farm for "Spring on the Farm", step back in time, explore the buildings and check out the tractors and other historic equipment on display.
There will also be great food and desserts for sale.
