A Traveler’s Guide To America’s Dairyland

In This Episode  


  • Burnett Diary Co-op Learn

    Burnett Dairy Cooperative has its roots in the Branstad and Wood River creameries. These two creameries had a long tradition of serving dairy producers. (A creamery skims off all the butter fat to make and sell butter and provides dairy farmers a way to sell their products.) The Branstad Creamery was the third creamery in Burnett county and started operations on May 13, 1897. The Wood Lake Creamery (renamed the Wood River Creamery) was started June 9, 1896.

  • Meister Cheese Company, LLC Learn

    The Meister-family cheesemaking tradition began as long ago as 1916, when our grandfather began making cheese in Southwestern Wisconsin. Our father moved the Meister Cheese Company to Muscoda in 1966, over 40 years ago. A large part of our dad’s legacy is Muscoda Protein Products. He was the first in Southwestern Wisconsin to see the potential for processing “waste” whey into protein and lactose. In this sense alone, our father was a most extraordinary dairy entrepreneur in a state filled with the best of them.
