Union Star Cheese Factory opened in 1911. As one of the few privately owned and operated small cheese factories in Wisconsin, Union Star’s tradition of excellence stands alone. We use the freshest milk from local dairies and carefully attend to the details that make each and every small batch of handcrafted cheese a unique work of art – prized for distinctive richness, flavor, texture, and aroma.
