Cheese of the Month
Deppeler's Wisconsin Wheel Swiss Cheese

In October we will be featuring Deppeler's Wisconsin Wheel Swiss Cheese at our stores. The regular sells for $5.99 while the aged is $6.99. This cheese comes from Monroe, Wis., and is known as one of the best swiss cheeses in the world. It's made with part skim milk, so it's a lower fat cheese.

American cheesemakers, not Swiss, modernized Swiss production. About fifty years ago, the only way to protect Swiss wheels as they ripened was to allow a hard rind to form. The advent of plastic packaging, which keeps moisture in but allows carbon dioxide to escape, made it possible to produce rindless Swiss cheese in blocks. Rindless blocks were developed for better yield in food service; retailers appreciate the higher yield and ease of cutting.

Taste: Full-flavored, buttery, nutty. Made with part skim milk; aged at least 60 days. Ideal for table, or on sandwiches and casseroles sliced and melted.

Cow of the Month
October cow

October's Cow of the Month is named - surprise! - October. This girl was born Oct. 21, 2008. She delivered her first calf at 22 months of age, which is a couple months earlier than usual for dairy cows. But October was big for her age, so she was bred earlier and has made a good transition to being a milking cow.

October wants to wish you a Happy Halloween!
