Annual Cheese Fundraiser!

The 36th Annual Pine County 4-H Cheese Sale is upon us!  Last year, over $18,000 worth of cheese was sold supporting youth who attended State Fair, State Dog, State Horse, State Shoot, Northeast Livestock, PICCKM Camp, and other programs sponsored by Pine County 4-H.

We are looking forward to partnering with the Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery, once again, this year.  Did you know that Ellsworth Creamery was proclaimed the "Cheese Curd Capital of Wisconsin" in 1984.  You will notice that in addition to the bulk cheeses, we have added three gift box samplers.  We're also excited that cheese will be delivered mid-December!

Here are some things you need to know:

  • You are a representative of Pine County 4-H.  Please enjoy yourself and be professional.
  • Customers must pre-pay for their order.
  • Preferred method of payment is check.  Checks should be made payable to Pine County 4-H.

Cheese Sale Directions:

  • Sell cheese starting after October 1 until November 16.  Orders are DUE to the Extension Office on Monday, November 19 by 9:00 a.m.
  • Tally up the grand total for your family's orders on the 11x17 order form.
  • Submit the family order form with payment to the Extension Office by 9:00 a.m. on Monday, November 19.
