Maytag Dairy Farms: New location at Nostalgia Wine and Spirits

Review by: Michael Stern

Maytag Dairy Farms cheese is among the world’s best blues. It has a crumbly texture that makes it well-suited for salads, and yet it feels moist and creamy on the tongue. It is spicy and deep flavored, and as luxurious as cream.

Maytag Blue’s history begins with a herd of prize Holstein cows that E.H. Maytag (the washing machine man) began to develop in 1919. From that herd, the Maytag family began producing cheese using a process developed at Iowa State University. They wanted to create an excellent veined cheese that would store well and be mailable. Today, hundreds of thousands of pounds of Maytag Blue are sent each year to hungry customers all over the United States from the farm where it is made in the small town of Newton, Iowa. Wheels of cheese are made virtually by hand and aged for six months in caves before they are ready to eat.

*Updated 12/8/23: You can no longer visit the farm, but you can order cheeses at their online store!

We have not visited the new location, but Nostalgia Wine and Spirits located in the  in Newton, IA sells their cheese –  Give this place a visit and let us know what you think.
