Stovetop Swiss: Retired cheesemaker continues his craft at home
Retired cheesemaker Fritz Kopp pours the curd into a mold while making a 2.5-pound wheel of Baby Swiss at his home in Monroe earlier this week. Kopp, who worked at Deppeler Cheese Factory for 38 years, has been making the small wheels of cheese at his home off and on for the last three years. (Times photo: Anthony Wahl)
