Kowalski’s Does Mankato

Posted on June 11, 2010

Intrepid cheesefolk from Kowalski’s Markets made the trip down from the Cities to tour our plant and soak up the culinary culture ofMankato. After lunch at the famous (or infamous) Wagon Wheel, they stopped in for a few hours to watch the cheesemaking process and pepper me with hundreds of questions. They shot a number of pictures for a small feature in next month’s Kowalski’s Magazine.

Pictured are Jody (Hennepin), Scott (Woodbury), Jill (Head Honcho),Kylene (Grand), Bode (Eagan), and Bruce (Eden Prairie).

What a joy it was to have such a knowledgeable and enthusiastic group. Even after the extended conversation, I noted nary a glazed eye; I think they were even a little sad to go.

So, thank you all for braving Highway 169 and taking a day to visit. I hope it won’t be the last time.
