The Best, Natural Wisconsin CheeseChippewa Valley Cheese Corporation in Melrose, Wisconsin, was founded by a group of Midwestern Wisconsin Dairy Farmers who wanted their milk made into high quality cheese. These Dairy Farmers were proud of their decision not to jump on the bandwagon and use rBGH on their herds. They realized that they had a very unique opportunity in front of them and Chippewa Valley Cheese Corporation (CVCC) was formed.
There is a limited amount of rBGH free milk on the market today. CVCC is owned by farmers, and we own our milk supply. All of CVCC's milk is rBGH free, and all of our members have signed a notarized affidavit to this effect.
All of our farms are Grade A dairy producers. Our farms are typically small to mid-sized, and we do not have any mega dairies. Most of the cows are pasture grazed during the summer months.
Our cheese is made the Old Fashion Way, with NO added casein! The method is slower and more labor intensive, but the end result is well worth it. That's why we call it, "The Natural Line".
Chippewa Valley Cheese Corporation is a proud member of The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
Thank you for the opportunity to tell you about our company!
