Montchevre scooped up seven awards at the 2017 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest®–on one of the largest cheese contests in the nation.
“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.”
This year’s event was its biggest yet, breaking records with 2,303 entries of cheeses, butters, and yogurts from 33 U.S. states. And amongst them, Montchevre received the following honors:
Class: Flavored Soft Goat’s Milk Cheeses
Class: Flavored Soft Goat’s Milk Cheese with Sweet Condiments
Class: Semi-Soft Goat’s Milk Cheeses
Class: Flavored Semi-Soft Goat’s Milk Cheeses
