Farmer's Cloverleaf Co-op Cheese and Butter Co: Built in th early 1920's, located one-half mile south and three miles east of Willard. According to the book, it was on the northeast corner of Cty. O and Cloverleaf Rd in the Town of Eaton. However, on my current county map, I believe this is now Chickadee Rd (someone correct me if I'm wrong). First Officers included Joe Ozanich, Frank Parkel, and Mike Podobnik. Otto (Toad) Meinholdt was one of the first cheesemakers. Others included Louis Bremner, RC Peiper, Frank Francel, George Vivoda, and Roy McConnell.
Mid-1940's the co-op was sold to Harry Schlinsong. Later operated by Grant (that's the only info I have, is one name--whether it was a first or last name?? assuming a last name), who made Swiss Cheese.
