They’re bringing back the Bon Bree.

This may not mean much to younger generations, but the name Bon Bree revives memories for many in Lake Country who relished the artisan cheese once made in Mapleton in the Town of Oconomowoc.

Dairy farmer Lloyd Williams remembers. He missed it so much, he thought why not bring it back?

“Bon Bree was around when I was a kid. I remember when it (Mapleton creamery) closed, people said it was such a shame,” said Williams over a glass of iced tea at his Town of Delafield dairy farm, Williams Homestead.

The farm is now run by Williams. The family has been there since 1836 and, with Williams’ grandchildren, has reached its sixth generation. The family farm is something he hopes his children carry on, as he has. Someone who appreciates the time and care it takes to grow and produce something just right, Williams was the perfect candidate to entertain the idea of recreating that special cheese recipe.

Williams also has the right connections.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
