Welcome to the home of the largest manufacturer of all natural Swiss cheese in the United States. Brewster Cheese Company has experienced steady growth in the Swiss cheese market since the dairy was purchased by John Leeman in 1965. Over the years we have expanded our production and warehousing facilities in Brewster, Ohio and added production facilities in Stockton, Illinois and Rupert, Idaho. 

Today more than 400 dairy farms provide milk to our production plants in Ohio and Illinois. Most of this milk is used to make our award winning, all natural, Swiss cheese. The balance of the Grade A milk is sold to bottling plants for fluid drinking milk and the production of other dairy products.

Creating consistent, cost-effective, quality products is the goal of Brewster Cheese Company. This is accomplished through the dedication of our work force and keeping pace with new technology in the cheese making field. Our state-of-the art cheese plants operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, producing approximately 85 million pounds of Swiss cheese a year.

Most of the cheese produced at the Brewster plant is cut in a modern, high speed cutting facility. This facility is able to cut and package over 200,000 pounds of cheese daily. Our Quality Control departments provide the necessary quality testing for milk, cheese, whey and the other products we produce to meet the expectations of our customers.

The whey processing division of Brewster Cheese Company turns a cheese making by-product known as whey into whey protein and lactose powders in Ohio and condensed whey solids in Illinois. These products are used as ingredients in baking, infant formula, and hundreds of other dairy and non-dairy products. Much of the powdered products produced in Ohio is exported to foreign countries.
