Master Cheesemakers At Babcock Hall Dairy Plant


Gary Grossen
Gary Grossen
Gary grew up making cheese, working with his parents above Prairie Hill Cheese Factory in Green County, Wisconsin. He learned early on that despite advances brought on by new technologies, the artistic skills and experience of the cheesemaker are what set the best apart. He entered the Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® program to help further those skills, graduating in 2002 with certifications in brick and muenster cheeses. He graduated again in 2009 with certification in cheddar and in 2013 he completed the program a third time with additional certifications in havarti and gouda. Today, Gary applies his skills at the Babcock Hall Dairy Plant at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he makes a variety of cheeses for sale in the Dairy Store and for holiday gift boxes.
