Celebrating 79 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.

Our History


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.
