1929       ESTABLISHED



The legacy of the Kraemer business started in Watertown in the 1920s when Tony Kraemer, a farmer, decided to open a small dairy business on his property.  In 1949, Tony’s son Jim joined his father and opened the retail store in the early 1970s.  Now sons Mike and Richard along with their families still operate the business.


The store features fresh cheese curds, fudge, a variety of cheese and sausage, and 13 varieties of cheese spreads among other products.
