How to tour Door County for the best Wisconsin Cheese

Ah, Door County…land of charming small towns, historic lighthouses and idyllic sunsets. It’s also a foodie’s dream thanks to the many shops and restaurants that pepper the peninsula. You’ll find more than your fair share of chocolate, wine, baked goods, cherry-flavored anything and of course, Wisconsin cheese to bring home.
Now, here’s our gift to you: A Door County itinerary featuring three fantastic Wisconsin cheese destinations!
Door Artisan Cheese (Egg Harbor)

Sure, you can buy Wisconsin cheese here. But what makes Door Artisan Cheese in Egg Harbor extra special is the fact that this culinary hot spot is all about celebrating the art and science of Wisconsin cheesemaking. Guests have the opportunity to see cheesemaking in action—and ask questions along the way—while sampling specialty cheeses along with regional and international wines.
The restaurant at Door Artisan Cheese is the perfect place to sit back and enjoy lunch once you’ve stocked up on goodies to go. Pair fresh cheese platters with a local wine or dine on a burger topped with house-made, award-winning cheese.

Renard’s Cheese (Sturgeon Bay)

At Renard’s Cheese, curd is the word. Known for their famous cheese curds, made fresh every day, you’ll have fun browsing their impressive variety of more than 50 flavor-infused cheeses. Just as impressive is the fun playground right outside—making this gem of a spot a true family-friendly destination!
If you’re looking for a more in-depth experience at Renard’s, take a tour of the facility and get a behind-the-scenes look at how the cheese is made. Post-tour, we have a feeling you’ll have worked up a craving for Wisconsin’s famous delicacy, so head over to the in-store deli and indulge in your choice of pizza, sandwiches or soups all topped with – you guessed it! – Renard’s fresh-from-the-creamery Wisconsin cheese.
Waseda Farms Market (Baileys Harbor)

Waseda Farm Market in Baileys Harbor does things a bit differently and we love them for it! Here you’re invited to wander the grounds to see how they raise their animals and grow their produce – plus, you can pick your very own veggies! Stock up on the goods for your next family feast and then head inside to the on-site market to browse fresh and organic items, including award-winning Wisconsin cheese, from a variety of local artisans, producers and farmers.
You’ll love the quaint, bucolic feel of Waseda Farms. Come for the goodies, stay for the cows and baby goats!

Milwaukee’s Ultimate Cheese Experience

What do you get when you pair award-winning Wisconsin cheese with a fresh, cold brew—and a sweet treat to top things off? Pure happiness!
If you’re making your way to Milwaukee on an empty stomach, keep reading for some of our favorite bucket list-worthy spots for Wisconsin cheese, artisan chocolate and local brews!

Tour Wisconsin’s First Urban Cheese Factory
Located in Milwaukee’s historic Walker’s Point neighborhood, Clock Shadow Creamery is an absolute must for every Wisconsin cheese devotee. As the first urban cheese factory in Wisconsin, the creamery is all about arming folks with fresh, local cheese while being environmentally conscious and educating customers about the craft of cheesemaking.
Speaking of going green, Clock Shadow Creamery’s impressive building features a geothermal heating and cooling system, a rooftop garden, rainwater reuse system, a power generating elevator and other ecological innovations.
As for a cheese that comes highly recommended? We suggest nabbing a sample of Quark, the creamery’s melt-in-your-mouth signature Wisconsin cheese, soft and creamy with a bit of a tang. Clock Shadow Creamery is the only cheese factory in the state that makes this popular European cheese! While you’re there you might as well grab some fresh, squeaky cheese curds too!

Cheese and Beer are Not in Short Supply at this Milwaukee Shop…
Just two miles north of Clock Shadow Creamery is a gem of a spot called Wisconsin Cheese Mart & Uber Tap Room. Founded in 1938, the Wisconsin Cheese Mart has grown from a small shop to a leading cheese retailer in the state. They’ve been around for 70+ years but the goal at Wisconsin Cheese Mart has never changed: to celebrate the cheesemakers’ craft, showcase their hard work and innovation, and serve cheese fanatics everywhere!
With over 175 Wisconsin cheeses to enjoy—plus more than 36 tap beers to try next door at Uber Tap Room—we can’t think of a better spot to kick back and relax…Wisconsin-style! Wisconsin Cheese Mart & Uber Tap Room’s in-house cheese bar offers unique pairings of cheese and Wisconsin craft beer, so go with one of their super savvy staff recommendations or step outside the box and create one of your own.

Take a Chocolate Pairing Class in Walker’s Point
Ready for dessert? To satisfy your sweet tooth, we suggest you pop in to Indulgence Chocolatiers on 2nd Street. Founded in 2007, and using only the finest chocolate from around the world and other locally sourced ingredients like cream from nearby Sassy Cow Creamery, the skilled chocolatiers craft absolutely, positively delicious confections.
For the ultimate date night or girls’ day, register for one of Indulgence Chocolatiers’ two-hour pairing classes. Learn which foods and beverages each chocolate complements perfectly…and do a little taste-testing along the way!
