Kerry achieved "Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker" status in 1999 after he successfully completed the "Master Cheese" apprenticeship program. Entry into the program requires being a licensed cheesemaker for at least 10 years. For 5 of the 10 years, he was required to manufacture the cheese he wanted to master in. In addition, Kerry appeared before a board of review who evaluated his qualifications prior to entry into the Master Cheese program.

Once accepted, Kerry attended a variety of courses in cheese artisanship, quality assurance and product evaluation. At the completion of his three years of training, Kerry had to submit cheese he made, to an independent panel who judged whether the quality of the cheese met the expectations of the Master Cheese program. In addition, Kerry needed to complete a 40-hour written exam to evaluate his knowledge of cheese making as well as the Master Cheese program. His cheese continues to be tested on a yearly basis to ensure he is achieving the highest quality set forth by the Master Cheese program. Kerry has earned his Master's degree in Cheddar, Colby and Monterey Jack.

Since receiving his Master's Cheese degree, Kerry has entered cheese into United States and World Cheese contests and has won numerous awards over the years.

Kerry has used his knowledge from the Master's program to create new and exciting flavors. Check out our line of Cheddar, Heritage Cheddar and Colby cheeses to excite your taste buds with some of the best tasting cheeses available.

The "Wisconsin Master's Mark" is your assurance that you are buying cheese of the highest quality.
