On July 4, 1956, our founder Hans Rothenbuhler made the first 250-pound wheel of cheese for his new American community in Middlefield, Ohio.  This was the fulfillment of a dream begun in his native Switzerland where Hans studied cheese making. Hans and wife Ann worked as a team, with Hans leading the manufacturing plant and Ann running the retail store, together growing the business to become one of the largest Swiss cheese manufacturers in the United States.

John Rothenbuhler, the son of Hans and Ann, along with a third generation of aspiring cheese makers, now leads Rothenbuhler® Cheesemakers with the same passion and commitment to quality as Hans, deeply committed to the family tradition of making only the very best cheese…guided by a pledge to perfection and a vision to bring nutritional goodness to your family.
