This Tiny Town in Wisconsin Is The Original Cheese Capital And You’ll Want To Visit
Plymouth is a small town of about 8,500 people in the east-central part of the state — near Sheboygan. You wouldn’t realize it from looking at a map, but about 15 percent of all cheese produced in the United States is handled here. From production facilities to large cold storage warehouses, Plymouth is frankly just full of cheese. With a rich history in our state’s most well-known industry and a beautiful, walkable downtown area for you to explore, Plymouth is a perfect spot for a weekend trip.
Wisconsin produces more than a quarter all cheese made in the US — if Wisconsin were a country, it would be the fourth largest cheese producing country in the world. And tiny Plymouth is a huge player in that very large business.
