As cheesemakers, we draw inspiration from a variety of sources. Songs, poems, friends and a host of happy experiences have sparked our creativity throughout the years. A drive home from the creamery one evening set the wheels in motion for our newest signature cheese. As the sun slowly descended over the prairie, the sky was lit in rich ochre hues and thoughts turned to the color palette often used in the work of Georgia O’Keefe, a native of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. Soon after, we set to work on this classic table cheese that embodies the heart and soul of the American Midwest – humble, friendly and reliable, yet a star in its own right. If O’Keefe had painted a sun setting over a Wisconsin prairie, this cheese would capture its color and character. The name we found best suited for the cheese that inspired our homage to O’Keefe is Prairie Sunset™.
Sweet. Lovable. Versatile.
