The Leading Resource for Entertaining Tips and Handcrafted Food Gift Ideas
With a history of selling fine Wisconsin cheeses, hams and sausages since 1926 and the largest hand-decorating bakery in the country, The Swiss Colony is America's premier resource for gourmet food gifts...from traditional fruitcakes to delicate petits fours and gift boxes and baskets brimming with sweet and savory treats.
We have established this learning center to present more in-depth knowledge of our products than is available in our catalog—the very first and longest-running specialty food catalog in the United States. In addition to providing food history and entertaining tips, of course, we hope it inspires you to think of The Swiss Colony when you need gift ideas for the holidays or any occasion.
