Gary Grossen, research cheesemaker with the Center for Dairy Research, recently took top honors at the Green County Fair for his aged Gouda. As noted in a tweet by the CDR, this is no small feat. The Green County Fair cheese contest is the largest county fair cheese contest in Wisconsin.
Grossen, a Master Cheesemaker, has been a full-time cheesemaker on campus for over 15 years, crafting more than 20 types of cheese. He has received numerous awards for his cheeses over the years. He was honored with a University Staff Recognition Award for his efforts in 2020.
