The U.S. Championship Cheese Contest celebrated cheese’s best and brightest makers last week, and Vermont Creamery was one of the well-deserving beneficiaries of the process. The goat cheese specialists took home six awards—including a coveted “Best of Class” award for its traditional french-style Bijou.

Adeline Druart, President, Vermont Creamery“It is a true honor and a thrill to win in Wisconsin,” said President Adeline Druart, in a press release. “These awards belong to our talented team of makers; whose dedication and expertise shine through in the delicious dairy we craft every day in Vermont.”

Vermont Creamery’s cheeses and butters were selected from a field of 2,555 entries spread across 35 U.S. states. Entries were judged on their flavor, body, texture, color, salt, finish, and packaging.
