In 1904 he came to Greenwood, where he was employed as a butter maker for Carl Grashorn in what is now the Armour Cheese House. Later he went to Doylestown and started a creamery with his two brothers, Alfred and Fred.

A short time later, Wuethrich returned to Greenwood and started a creamery in the Town of Eaton (Clark Co.).

He was married to Miss Vera Drummond at the Grace Methodist Church in Greenwood, June 10, 1909, by the Rev. William Norton.
