Vermont Business Magazine A record-setting 2,303 cheese entries from 33 states were evaluated during the two-day 2017 United States Championship Cheese Contest competition in Green Bay, Wisconsin, which concluded Thursday. Vermont cheesemakers walked away with seven firsts: von Trapp Farmstead (blue veined); Cellars at Jasper Hill (brie & harbison & Willoughby); Vermont Creamery (creme fraiche); Cabot Creamery (reduced fat jalapeno cheddar); and Grafton Village (hard sheep’s milk). A team of 50 nationally-renowned judges hailing from 18 states considered each entry’s flavor, body and texture, salt, color, finish, and packaging, and via an independent scoring system, determined the top three cheeses at the contest.
