Colby cheese was named after a town in what state?
In 1874, Joseph F. Steinwand developed a new type of cheese at his father’s cheese factory near Colby, Wisconsin. The cheese was named after the village, which had been founded only three years earlier. While Colby cheese is still widely available, it is no longer produced in Colby. Colby is similar to Cheddar, but does not undergo the cheddaring process. Considered a semi-hard cheese, Colby is softer, moister, and milder than cheddar because it is produced through a washed-curd process. It is typically used as a table cheese, and in snacks and salads.
The correct answer is Wisconsin.
