Hello, fellow cheese lovers! It is I, your fearless leader, here to tell you about some cheese-related news from here in the Corridor! Get ready, because Kalona cheese curds are set to return next month!

According to a recent posting on the Kalona Creamery website:

"Kalona Creamery is thrilled to share this news with you as this is the first time cheese will be made at this facility since Twin County Dairy closed its doors in 2014."

An official cheese curd launch party will be happening at the facility on August 11th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The party will feature a relay challenge, photo opportunities with Lona the Cow, and even a cheese curd eating contest. It is a free, family-friendly event.

CEO Bill Evans said in a statement:

“We are excited to bring back fresh, squeaky cheese curds to this historic facility. We appreciate the support we’ve received from the community."

Kalona Creamery is located at 2206 540th St SW in Kalona. I've never been there before, but I do love me some fresh cheese curds, so I'm looking forward to trying them!
