Grass Fed Cheese
Nordic Creamery is family owned and operated making some of Wisconsin's finest gourmet, artisan cheese from the milk of goats and cows on pasture.
Award-winning Cheesemaker Al Bekkum and his family live on the Bekkum-Langaard Farmstead owned and operated by their family since immigration from Norway in 1917. The farm is located among other Norwegian settlers in Westby, Wisconsin within Vernon County's lush, green hills and valleys known as the Coulee Region. This un-glaciated land is recognized for its fertile soil and exceptional grazing land. It is the same area where Grass-fed Traditions secures its grass-fed beef, lamb, and pastured poultry.

Bavarian Cheese from the German Allgäu Alps - New!
The Allgäu Alps in Germany. An "alp" refers to a high mountain pasture where cows are brought to for grazing.
For many generations the family farms in the Allgäu region of Southern Germany have fed their family cows only grass and grass hay. Using their local breed, the Allgäu brown cow, the herdsmen in the Allgäu mountain region safely guide the cows down from the mountains to spend the winters in their cozy barns, and are led back up to the Alps every spring.
The local Allgäu brown cow is specially suited for the high mountain altitudes of the Bavarian Alps, where they graze on lush green grass all summer long.
This Bavarian Emmentaler Cheese offers a mild nutty, sweet bite with a balanced finish.
