    I found that the Melting Pot uses cheese that comes from family dairy farms in southern Wisconsin. I didn’t realize it was a Roth company. I was just looking up information on them yesterday, since one of their products took top international honors last year (and I’m wanting desperately to get my hands on some of that cheese). My nephew and his family live in Monroe, WI, so I’m wanting to take a tour and do some shopping at the Roth location there the next time we visit them. We are big cheese eaters at our house.
