Foremost Farms reopens its cheese plant in Waumandee. That plant had been closed for a year.

The plant used to produce pepper jack and Colby cheese, but lost out to competition from the West Coast.

Now, Foremost has decided to convert the operation to producing big blocks of cheese for aging.

Equipment is being tested now and production is expected to pick up this spring.
