The Bischofberger Cheese Factory (circa early 1900s) was named after cheesemaker Adolph Bischofberger. The factory was located at the corner of Meadow Valley Road and Disch Road in the Town of New Glarus. It was on the same farm as Green Countys first limburger factory, which was in a log building on the Albert Babler farm. The stone basement ruins of the factory in the photo are still visible. Bischofberger is pictured in front of the horse and wagon and was married to Maria Magdalena Hefty. Those seated in the wagon are presumed to be his wife and Sister Rosina Hefty. The Hefty sisters were Bablers granddaughters. Bob Elmer of Sun Prairie recently shared this piece of cheesemaking history with the National Historic Cheesemaking Center.
