We were surprised and overjoyed to take home two ribbons from this year’s American Cheese Society Competition! This is a life-long dream come true, and we couldn’t be prouder of our cheeses and our amazing team that made this happen. We’re still so overwhelmed with happiness!
Our Cottonseed won third place in the Soft-Ripened Cheese Mixed Milk category, and Rocket’s Robiola won second place in the American Originals category! The Cottonseed in particular is a favorite of ours – Samantha has been making this cheese for years now, long before the creamery was built, in her kitchen with milk from her personal goats. For this cheese to win a ribbon is truly a dream come true for Samantha! The Robiola is a newer creation but we are equally excited that it won a ribbon as well!
We’d also like to congratulate all of our fellow competitors; in particular we’re very proud of Goat Lady Diary, a fellow NC dairy where Samantha used to work, for their blue ribbons! We had a blast and learned a ton at this year’s ACS, and can’t wait for next year!
