Thank you for trying to #SaveTheCurds

Dear friends,

Many of you have been asking for an update about the Original Deep Fried Cheese Curds and our fight to stay at the Minnesota State Fair.

So here it is: We will not be returning to the Fair in August.

After 42 years at the Fair, the level of loyalty toward the Original Deep Fried Cheese Curds has been overwhelming. Because of all the hard work and support from you, we were able to meet with Fair officials last month. We had hoped they’d rethink their decision.

Unfortunately for all of us, the officials we met with stated they did not have authority to reverse the decision.

This journey has been a long, drawn out process that leaves me disappointed with the Fair’s management. I am especially saddened at the lack of transparency in their process and decision-making altogether.

So, we’re moving on. We are proud to have served the Original Deep Fried Cheese Curds to generations of families at the Minnesota State Fair and, somehow, somewhere, we’d like to carry on the tradition. If you have any ideas, please email

I sincerely appreciate all of your support and loyalty to the family business. Thank you for trying to #SaveTheCurds.
