“We couldn’t be prouder to bring home seven awards, including five Best of Class awards, at this year’s U.S. Championship Cheese Contest,” said Co-Founder Arnaud Solandt. “These accolades are a true testament to our craft and the quality of our product thanks to the fresh milk supply of Montchevre’s network of more than 350 local family farms.”
