Keystone Farm is located in New Glarus, in the heart of the cheese
making capital of the United States- Green County Wisconsin.
Every year for twelve years, Pete and his five children traveled from the east coast back to his wife, Lauree's home state of Wisconsin for vacation.Time after time they found themselves bringing back more and more cheese for family and friends who raved about the exceptional flavor of the fresh Wisconsin cheese. The demand grew among their family and friends for fresh Wisconsin cheese as the years went by.
On September 11th, 2001, the family was seventy-two miles from the terrorist attacks on
the World Trade Center. It was at this point in time that they decided to move some the family from the east coast to Wisconsin, leaving back Nikole and Peter Jr. to finish high school school.
In 2004, Peter purchased a dairy farm in Green County that was originally homesteaded in 1873 by Swiss settlers. The farm was a well-known and respected Grade A Dairy that had milked
an exceptional herd of Brown Swiss Cows during the last century.
In 2007 Keystone Farms Cheese was established.
