Quaint communities connected by scenic rolling hills and beautiful valley landscapes provide a charming, peaceful, home-town feeling that many have never experienced before. Green County includes the cities of Monroe and Brodhead, and the villages of Albany, Belleville, Brooklyn, Browntown, Monticello and New Glarus. Residents thrive on the small town values and quality of life found in these communities. The cost of living here is lower and real estate is relatively inexpensive, yet metropolitan areas are closer than you think.
Bustling historic downtown specialty shops, fine dining, a brimming calendar of events, room to grow, and with major employers in the manufacturing, food processing and agri-business to complement a charming lifestyle, Green County is truly a special place to live, work, learn and play – a combination of elements seldom found in other parts of the country.
Green County is home to one of the nation’s largest and most successful catalog companies, The Swiss Colony, and a nationally recognized medical facility, Monroe Clinic & Hospital. Cheese produced in one of the many cheese factories dotting the countryside, continually receives national and international awards and recognitions. In fact, the Cheese industry cluster, from milk production, stainless steel fabrication and machine shops, to milk and cheese distribution companies and marketers, is a driving economic force in the County.
