The 50,000-pound Cottage Cheese Container is Here!
Oct 08, 2020 (Westby, WI)
It is only fitting “The Cottage Cheese Capital of Wisconsin” has a glorious, 50,000-pound Westby cottage cheese container to help pay homage to the area’s dairy heritage. The 6,280-gallon silo located outside of Westby’s manufacturing plant on Main Street now resembles Westby cottage cheese.
Technically speaking, the silo does not hold cottage cheese. This silo most often holds yogurt, but the Creamery is best known for its World Championship 4% small curd cottage cheese and the wrap helps emphasize this prestigious recognition.
The installation was completed by Shawn Engh of Signs by Shawn, Viroqua on Sept. 23rd.
Westby cottage cheese is widely distributed in the Upper Midwest. To find a store near you, visit the store locator and enter your zip code. Or, stop by the Westby Creamery Cheese Store at 206 South Main Street, Westby.
