In the second year of the North Carolina State Fair’s Cheese Competition, we entered five cheeses with high hopes. After waiting with bated breath for a over a week since the fair began (we couldn’t make it to the fair to check ourselves!), we finally found out that two of our cheeses won medals! We won a silver medal for our fresh Mozzarella and we won another silver medal for our Spicy Pimento Goat Cheese. We couldn’t be happier (OK, well, gold would have been nice, but there’s always next year)! There were a total of 95 cheeses from 23 cheese makers from NC, Texas, Maine, Tennessee and even Australia, so competition was pretty stiff. The panel of five judges was exceptionally tough on all the entries, awarding only three gold medals among all the cheeses entered (two for hard cheeses and one for unflavored chevre). We are extremely lucky to be able to do something we love, and getting a little pat on the back feels so good! But, we never could do it without all of our awesome customers and fans! Thanks to all of you for all of your tasting, comments and support; you helped make it happen! Next year, we’re going for the gold!
