I had always thought that Maytag Blue came from a large, industrial farm and operation. Not so! We stopped by the tasting room, where we got multiple samples of cheese from women who had worked for the company for 12 and 33 years, respectively. We watched a video about the cheesemaking - which occurred right across the field - and the history of Maytag Blue, and then got to watch the cheese wrappers at work. The entire cheesemaking process is still done by hand, scraping the rind off and all, and there is a special origami fold that they use to wrap each wedge. It was well worth the visit, even if we couldn't take advantage of the special at-dairy pricing since we had another eight days in our trip!
