Stamper Cheese Company

Critics' Picks

Bret Stamper, owner of Stamper Cheese Company, offers an array of artisanal cheeses sourced from farms across southwest Wisconsin, though some of the most popular, including the highly tasty chipotle cheddar, are his own creations. Other top sellers include the apricot Gouda, blueberry goat cheese, and smoked mozzarella string cheese. You can taste them yourself at your favorite neighborhood farmers' market, where Stamper's cheesemongers are more than willing to offer up a sample or two.
