Storage Temperatures Necessary to Maintain Cheese Safety
Henning's Cheese is a family owned cheese factory that has been manufacturing cheese since 1914. We are the last cheese factory in the United States making wheels larger than 75 pounds. We can make wheels as small as 12 pounds or as large as 12,000 pounds. Look through the Available Wheel Sizes to see what wheel would work best for you. Stores enjoy working with our 38 pound flats and 75 pound wheels, because they are easier for store personnel to handle. Try building a cheese display using different sizes and flavors of wheels. Go to our Mammoth Wheel Displays page to view carvings and displays using Henning's Cheese.
Call us and ask to speak to Kay for more information about this unique opportunity. All of our wheels are custom made to the customer's needs.
We have no minimum order, but note that most refrigerated trucks have a 1200 pound minimum weight-so if you order 75 or 1200 pounds, you will be paying freight on 1200 pound.
Henning Cheese gets 4000 pounds of cheese out of a vat. If you are ordering a specialty cheese like Colby Jack for example, and only want 150 pounds, your order will wait until we get enough orders together to make an entire vat. This means that lead times may take as long as a month.
