Hello Brenda,

Is there still the cheese making tours? Monroes was pretty much a dairy farm last time I was there. 35 years ago..

Thanks for stopping by, Erol.  Yes, there are some cheese tours still.  One of the local companies has viewing windows and self tours during regular business hours.  Every other year during the Cheese Days celebration, there are cheese making tours as well - visit the farm, then visit the cheese factory.  I'm pretty sure that the Green County area still have the largest concentration of master cheesemakers in the United States.
