There is a convenience store at Maustin along that route that has a pretty good cheese selection as well as New Glarus beer we stop at.  Not sure where Bloomer is though.

There  are several at the Mauston exit, there is another one at Madison at the Hwy 19 exit.

Was trying to think of a good place around J-ville & found out the couple I knew of had been closed for years. Might just hit up the cheese section at most any Woodman's. They stock a majority of the good cheeses found in this state. Unless you really have a penchant to visit a cheese store, of course. Think all the good Ma & Pa stores in that area are gone too.

The times..... they are a changin'....

Why, would someone with access to Cabot want some of that swill? Like buying NY syrup.

While ur shopping, look for Vern’s string cheese. Malcores cheese curds & Laacks or Star dairy brick cheese of 1C51346C-7E85-401D-9FB2-432A66B4AC9D.thumb.jpeg.89b32d33eb96b47dfd6c9c0de60942a5.jpegvarious flavors. Always grab cheese curds from the far back of the pile. As they will be the freshest & most squeaky.

Looks like Woodmans grocery store is just west of the interstate on hwy 14. They will have the the largest selection u will find of cheese anywhere. Or anything else for that matter. Love that store.

Whenever I go that way I always stop at Kugels cheese store in Lena Wisconsin, about a half hour north of green bay and maybe just a tad out of your way. They are right next to a cheese factory and usually have fresh cheese curds.

I bought some Cabot "Seriously Sharp" yellow cheddar last weekend to put in some quiche (daughters requested their dad make quiche for fathers' day - how's that work?).

It's seriously good.  Will buy more.

I suspect that’s what he meant. We don’t need to cover anything up here , so we don’t need to dye our cheese orange 😉

seriously though, vt cheddar is known to be dryer and more bitter than other cheeses.

That’s what I like I did get some really nice sharp cheddar in upstate New York at a nice little Menenite store  a few years ago some nice 9 year  old aged cheddar

No, it's seriously yellow.  They had white also.

Vern's also has delicious aged sharp cheddar.  Chilton is a long ways from where you will be, but I buy it at a little store in Prairie du Chien so I assume you can find it at other stores too.

You are too far south, I would have said Nelson Cheese factory otherwise.

I assume you are referring to the Nelson Cheese factory/creamery?  When I was a kid my aunt and uncle had a place on lake Pepin.  I loved going over to Nelson for ice cream and cheese.
