Formerly known as Middlefield Cheese, Rothenbuhler Cheesemakers has been producing delicious Swiss cheese varieties of high quality since 1956, when Hans Rothenbuhler made its first 250 lb. wheel of cheese. Hans and his wife Ann worked as a team in creating Middlefield Cheese, with Ann running the retail store, known today as the Rothenbuhler Cheese Chalet. Today, the company is led by the couple's son, John, who leads with the same passion and commitment to quality as his father. The Cheese Chalet offers a wide selection of meats and cheeses cut to order, fresh sandwiches, bakery items, local and gourmet products, and of course samples of our Swiss! The store has become a destination not to be missed-come by for a taste to see for yourself why!

As a life long resident of the Middlefield/Burton area, I was sadden to see the changes to Middlefield Cheese House especially its name change. Gone are the ladies who helped you with ordering your Christmas baskets. Gone is the charm of shop with its local products. A sure indication of the change can be seen in the Saturday morning parking... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We changed the name of our business to better reflect our history and Swiss heritage; Hans & Ann Rothenbuhler were the founders of our company and the company is still owned by the Rothenbuhler family. Our cheeses and people behind the business have not changed. We carry more local and... More

I never knew about their cheese. I had creamy, mild and hot cheese. The lunch meat honey baked ham I bought was excellent on my white bread.

They have a huge supply of cheese and other various products. Thought they would show how they actually make the cheese. Had a hoagie from the shop. It was piled with meat and cheese for a bit over $5.

Hi Diana, thank you writing a review! We hope you enjoyed our $5 sub. Just curious, what gives you the impression that our shop is very commercialized? We are a single shop that is family-owned and aim to create a unique atmosphere in our store. Thank you for visiting us! More

Got some cheese curds from here. They did not squeak. However the tasted pretty good. They video about the history of the place was a little CHEESY. No pun intended. Looks like it was made in the 70s. If you like cheese you can get good cheese here.

Hi JubileeJerry, thank you for the review! It sounds like you saw our classic video made in the early 80's. Last month we premiered a brand new film that tells the story of our founders, Hans and Ann Rothenbuhler - hope you can check it out next time you visit! More

The cheese was delicious and very reasonably priced. They offer samples, which makes it so easy to select what to purchase.

This local factory and shop sells their own cheeses along with a variety of other cheeses, meats, specialty grocery items, and gifts. You can buy a gift basket or make your own. I recommend the sharp Swiss, baby Swiss, and smoked Swiss cheeses. You can also visit the museum to learn about he history of the business.

This small market sells a big variety of cheeses plus deli meats, homemade jams, and a few shelves of other food and snack items. It is not a grocery store so don't expect to pick up all of your grocery items here, but the cheeses are very good and make it worth the trip to this small Amish community.

You can get some great types of cheeses and order yourself lunch and eat it there at cafe style tables. Try the salami cheese... It's interesting... They also have meat at the deli counter and already packaged, so not just cheese.
