Original Henning's Cheese Factory 1914
Henning's Cheese Factory 2010
Henning Family - Mindy, Kerry, Kay, Everett, Rebekah, Kert
In 1914, Otto and Norma Henning made a decision to purchase a rural hometown cheese factory, in the heart of America's Dairyland, near Kiel, Wisconsin and devoted their lives to producing quality cheese. Their son Everett along with his wife Jellane took the factory over in 1963, seeing it through many changes. Everett is still very involved with the factory today. Since then, three of Everett's children, Kay, Kerry and Kert along with granddaughters Mindy and Rebekah continue the tradition.
Small local family dairy farmers continue to provide Henning's cheese with a source of quality milk. These farmers pride themselves by pasture feeding their cows along with feeding them a carefully balanced diet of natural grains. Henning's uses natural, as well as non-animal, ingredients and offers a line of Kosher approved cheeses for your enjoyment.
99 years and three facility upgrades later, Henning's Wisconsin Cheese still stands as a testament of our family's commitment to making great quality cheese locally for national enjoyment. With the help of Henning's dedicated employees, consistent quality continues to be our best source of pride. We invite you to experience one of the best tasting, and highest quality cheeses available today.
From our family to yours, we thank you for your support.
