Is your mouth watering just thinking about that Instagram worthy cheese-pull? Ours, too! But so you know what would make this even better…

Cheese Facts!

It’s briesy to be a cheese lover once you know these facts from Taste of Home

  • Cheese was created over 4,000 years ago by accident. It is believed that cheese was created when milk was accidentally stored in a container lined with an animal’s stomach. The enzymes caused the milk to separate and curd–thus creating cheese!  
  • You need 10 pounds of milk to produce 1 pound of cheese. However, if using sheep milk, you’ll need 6 pounds. Why? Sheep milk is fattier. 
  • Mice don’t like cheese. Mice actually prefer carbs and sugary finds. 
  • Love cheese? Become a master cheesemaker by applying to the Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® Program through the Center for Dairy Research. It’s the only program of its kind!
