Our Story

Rich in the tradition of Wisconsin cheese making, Springside Cheese carries on a family legacy of producing the finest hand-crafted, natural cheeses.

Springside Cheese had its beginnings just after the largest waves of European immigration sent settlers Wisconsin’s way. Springside Cheese’s first factory was founded a midst the rolling hills and valleys north of Green Bay, near a local fresh spring, hence its namesake, in the year 1908.

Seventy years after its opening, the history held in Springside Cheese’s walls was married to the heartfelt passion of cheese maker Wayne Hintz. The marriage of legacy and passion gave birth to a new generation of cheese making. Hintz is the son of a dairy farmer, the late Alfred Hintz, and nobody was surprised when he followed his dreams of making a living in agriculture, following in the footsteps of his father and future father-in-law.

After over a decade of studying the art of cheese making and acquiring his license, Hintz bought his own small factory—Springside Cheese—in the fall of 1973. He spent the early years dedicating his time to producing only the finest Cheddar cheese—which later became an award-winning cheese—and expanding his factory and cheese store. Now, forty years later, he’s won several cheese making awards, both nationally and internationally, for his semi-hard Bandaged Cheddar and White Cheddar.

Making cheese has always been, and continues to be, a family tradition at Springside Cheese. The legacy of the Hintz family’s long tradition and passion for cheese making continues with a fourth generation as Hintz’s two eldest sons join Springside Cheese to learn the trade, to share in the passion that is cheese making. Making cheese is our family tradition. Make serving it yours.
