History of Lacey Baby Swiss
Baby Swiss originated in 1967 just outside of Charm, Ohio, and was invented by cheese connoisseur Alfred Guggisberg, an alumnus of the famous Swiss Federal “Molkereishulle” (cheese maker’s institute). The name Baby Swiss was coined by Alfred’s wife, Margaret Guggisberg, who thought that in comparison to the larger wheels of traditional Swiss cheese, when placed side by side, the new cheese looked like a baby. While Lacy Baby Swiss is produced in the same area and was inspired by the original Baby Swiss, it is not produced by Guggisberg Cheese. Guggisberg’s lower fat and sodium cheese is Lucerne Cheese.
