Uplands Cheese is located near Dodgeville, Wisconsin.
Uplands currently makes only two kinds of cheese, both of which are outstanding examples of Wisconsin artisan cheese. Its cheeses are sold in the best cheese shops across the United States, and abroad.
Cheesemaker Andy Hatch has taken the milk provided by a herd that grazes on new pasture (rotational grazing) on a regular basis, and made award-winning cheese. His partner, Scott Mericka, manages the cows and makes sure their diet is perfect for producing the “terroir” taste particular to Pleasant Ridge in the cheese. Pleasant Ridge Reserve is the result.
Uplands Cheese is part of the southern Wisconsin “Cheesebelt,” where some of the best cheese in the world is made each year.
