College sweethearts Tony and Julie Hook started Hook’s Cheese Co. in 1976, producing just two cheeses, cheddar and Swiss. In 1982, Julie Hook became the first (and still only) woman to win first overall at the World Cheese Championship. Today, Hook’s makes over 50 cheese varieties. Despite their growth and success, the company buys milk from the same small group of farmers they have worked with for over three decades and Tony & Julie still make weekly appearances at their county Farmer’s Market.
