This paper addresses the regional impact of the Davisco Foods International cheese plant in Lake Norden, South Dakota. Since opening in November 2003, the $40 million plant has exerted a growing influence on dairying throughout eastern South Dakota and adjacent areas, as well as influencing the community of Lake Norden, the cultural landscape, the economy, and the environment in various ways. Each topic is investigated from a geographic perspective based primarily on field research. As the plant continues to expand, its impact on the covered topics deepens, both negatively and positively.
