Family Story By Roy Rasmussen



Elmdale Cheese Factory


Located 5 1/4 miles Northwest of Greenwood, Clark Co., Wisconsin.  It was built and started by Adolph Rasmussen and his son Walter and George Humke in Oct. 1928.  It consisted of a Cheese Factory, a small Tavern and a Grocery Store (operated by Mrs. Walter (Julia) Rasmussen).  In Oct., 1938, Walter Rasmussen bought the business from the other three.  In the mid to late 40's they built an addition which particularly increased the size of the tavern and grocery store and expanded the cheese making plant as well.  They continued in the business until it was sold in 1976 to Roger Asbeck.  They retired after 46 yrs. of operation.
