Local cheesemakers earn blue ribbons

The Wisconsin State Fair is more than a month away, but that hasn’t stopped local cheesemakers from winning blue ribbons this week.


Agropur cheesemaker Roger Krohn and Ron’s Wisconsin Cheese’s Gary Cherney won their respective categories in the Wisconsin State Fair Dairy Products Competition judged on Thursday. Krohn’s smoked provolone earned the top spot in the smoked cheese category with a score of 99.375 out of 100. Cherney’s yellow cheese curds won the unflavored cheese curd category with a score of 99.400. Krohn also captured second place in the mozzarella category with his whole milk, low-moisture mozzarella.


Both Krohn and Cherney will receive their awards during the Wisconsin State Fair on August 12th where their award-winning entries will be a part of the Blue Ribbon Dairy Products Auction.
