About Cheesemakers Renard's Cheese Door County Wisconsin

A Wisconsin Family Tradition

Established in 1961, Renard’s Cheese is a family owned and operated cheesemaking business in Door County, Wisconsin. Completely surrounded by the fresh waters of Lake Michigan and Green Bay, the Door County peninsula is unlike any other place in the world. Rich nutrients in the soil create lush grazing land for dairy cows which produce the high-quality milk that Renard’s Cheese is known for. Now on its third generation of cheesemakers, the Renard family is committed to handcrafting quality, gourmet cheese in America’s Dairyland. Our selection includes Cheddars, Colby, Farmers, Muenster, Brick, Marble, Monterey Jack, Mozzarella String, Smoked String and over 50 flavor infused specialty cheese products.
