At the north edge of Newton, Iowa, people come from all over to purchase cheese, especially the Maytag Blue cheese. Showcases of cheese in their lobby area. Made and packaged right there in their plant.

Stopped with kids and grandkids to pick up some blue cheese on a rainy Fall day. Staff were super friendly, everyone provided with samples, then the grandkids picked some popcorn from the field.
