Not only is Ohio the number one producer of Swiss cheese in the nation, but it also ranks 10th for overall cheese production.

Here are just a few of Ohio’s numerous award-winning cheese makers:

  • Pearl Valley Cheese – The four generation, family owned business won a Gold Medal at the 2014 World Championship Cheese Contest in the rindless Swiss Cheese class
  • Guggisberg Cheese Factory – Crafted the 2014 Grand Champion Swiss Cheese at the Ohio State Fair and U.S. Cheese Championship
  • Blue Jacket Dairy – Family owned and operated farm and creamery that specializes in artisan cheeses
  • Heini’s Cheese Chalet – Home to over 70 varieties of cheese
  • Steiner Dairy – The oldest cheese factory in the United States at over 180 years old

Whether melted over steamy pasta, dripped from an indulgent dessert or paired with a robust wine, there is a cheese for everyone.

In fact, there are more than 300 varieties of American-made cow’s milk cheeses to choose from!
