Wisconsin Cheeses

Time to check out our new local & regional cheeses!

Clock Shadow Creamery began producing Quark upon request from members of the local community of Northern European heritage. Quark is a remarkably versatile, fresh cow’s milk cheese and can be used in place of yogurt, cream cheese and ricotta in many baking and cooking applications. Some traditionally use fresh Quark for breakfast with fruit or granola, on bagels or on toast. It's used in Kasenkuchen, a traditional cheese cake, brownies, blintzes or kringles. It's free of gums and stabilizers and contains relatively low fat, high protein, no added sugar with relatively low lactose levels. We might see this flagship cheese become the next big health food after Greek yogurt. While it is currently available in Plain and Garlic Dill, we're looking to carry more depending on how much you like it!

Clock Shadow Creamery has a couple other popular cheeses, and we just started carrying Capri Cheesery's Chevre cheese. We've been looking for a local alternative to the more national chevre brands...

We love to support local, and you do too! We know because your purchases at our store tell us. So keep up the good work, local producers. "All of us" can't wait to try new products, nonetheless new Wisconsin Cheeses! #CheersToCheese
