Michael Thomas, Co-owner, Schoolhouse Artisan Cheese says, "We're now focusing on corporate gift boxes, where we're going to companies in Wisconsin and saying, 'Why would you give a gift box to your customers or employees that comes from China or comes from wherever it may come from, Why not give a gift box that's made right here in Wisconsin?'"
