Watonga Cheese Factory prides itself on its 80-year old tradition to produce rich, all-natural, and handmade cheddar cheese that is so full of flavor. It was originally founded in 1940 in Watonga, Oklahoma. This is where the business got its name. When the tropical storm Erin hit Watonga in 2007, their factory was torn off and the whole building was condemned. The owners then decided to re-establish the factory in Perryton, Texas, where “they still use the original equipment” and use the exact same recipes. To date, they are known for serving “the best cheese you will find anywhere.” In addition, the factory has a retail store where you can purchase all of their natural cheddar cheeses. They also sell cheese curds along with roughly 50 different kinds of other manufacturer’s cheeses. Thus, we highly recommend you stop by. It's definitely worth the trip!
