The first step of making high quality cheese is sourcing high quality milk and that’s just one of the elements that contributes to the success of Sartori Cheese Company. In this show we wake up early (very early) with a 4th generation dairy farm family and follow them through their daily ritual of cleaning and milking their 40 plus dairy cows. The Ditter family runs Smilaire Holsteins in Plymouth WI and has been producing milk for Sartori Cheese for 20 years. We then travel northward to Antigo, WI to visit Sartori Cheese Company. There we get a tour from Master Cheesemaker Mike Matuchesk and find out directly from Owner and CEO, Jim Sartori, just what has made Sartori Cheese Company so successful over the past 75 years.
