Celebrating 78 Years of Cheesemaking
On October 11, 1941, the first wheels of Maytag Blue Cheese were formed and put to age in our caves. Today, the tradition continues.
Seventy seven-years after the first wheels of Maytag Blue Cheese were made, our family tradition continues. Each wheel is handcrafted on the family farm in the rolling hills of central Iowa. We are still owned and operated by the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of E.H. Maytag. His legacy is the pleasure and joy taken from good food shared with people you cherish and we are proud to be a part of it.
A Time-Honored Process
Today, we still make each wheel by hand. Our cheesemakers carefully monitor each wheel as it ages – developing the beautiful blue veining and our signature flavor.
