Article written by: Jeanne Carpenter
Ahhh … the power of cheese. Evidenced by the growing development of farmstead cheeses on Wisconsin dairy farms, combined with the conversion of commodity to the more profitable (and tastier) specialty cheese produced at existing dairy plants, that glorious food we call cheese has been boosting the state’s rural economy for years.
Now, cities are getting in on the action. Last week, a developer in Milwaukee announced plans to create a $7.2 million, four-story building with a cheesemaking plant on the street level in the Walker’s Point area at 538 S. 2nd St.
The 30,000-square-foot building would be developed on a 6,400-square-foot vacant lot by Kaufmann LeSage LLC. The first floor would be leased to Clock Shadow Creamery, a cheese plant and retail shop operated by Master Cheesemaker Bob Wills, well-known in the state for operating his own cheese-incubator company at Cedar Grove Cheese near Plain.
