Hook's Cheese

Mineral Point, Wisconsin

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.




The ultimate refinement of the classic American style Cheddar. We currently offer a range of aged cheddars, from the super sharp three-year, great for use on burgers and sandwiches, to the rare 15 year, a luxurious cheddar with pronounced calcium crystals, pleasing acidity, and all of the complexity of a well aged wine. Hook's 3 year Cheddar was the 2015 ACS 3rd place winner in the Mature Cheddar category.

Hook’s began producing blue cheeses in 1997 with its Original Blue, a cheese which raised the bar for dense, creamy blues in America. Since then they have continued to introduce new, award winning variations, including the double cream Blue Paradise and the extra-stinky, washed rind Tilston Point.
