About The Cheese Box

What is The Cheese Box?


We are an award winning gourmet specialty cheese and sausage shop in beautiful Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. We offer many interesting and tasty items. For over eighty years, The Cheese Box has been serving America with the best of Wisconsin products, fine cheeses, wines and special gifts from the Dairyland. The Cheese Box specializes in gift baskets and boxes of cheese, sausage, and other goodies for every occasion. We carry the original Foamation Cheese Head Hats from the creator of this fun item, not fake knock-offs.

Why is Wisconsin Cheese So Good?


The Dairyland State has a unique geological heritage.  Our cows are feeding on grass that is rich in minerals from glaciers that drifted through the state about 10,000 years ago.   Wisconsin’s exceptional soil makes for happy cows and well nourished cows produce the best milk, and ultimately the very best cheese one can find in the USA.

Now about our Cheese…

The Cheese Box sells only the finest quality, natural cheeses. We don’t sell shelf stable cheeses…they have too many things in them we don’t think are good for you. Only the finest cheeses are sold at The Cheese Box. For example, we offer the “Cadillac” and “Bentley” of blue cheeses. Many of our cheeses are award winning and new to the market. You cannot buy them just anywhere.
