World Jersey Cheese Awards 2010

On June 1st we shipped some of our cheese to New York, from there it was sent to the Island of Jersey in the UK. This was for an "invite" only awards.

We were very anxious this past week, knowing that the judging would be on Friday, the 11th. Yesterday morning we received the results to the judging. There were 102 cheese entries submitted from 10 different countries, only 38 awards were given.

Our Boeren Kaas Gouda placed Silver.

Our Jersey Emment and Hill Folk Jersey both placed Bronze.

We are very excited! Being our first time entering our cheese in a world competition, we were not sure how we would do against other cheesemakers from around the world.

We're so thankful for a lot of our family and friends who encouraged us to go for it and do this!
We've been informed of another competition held in Europe this fall. We just may consider doing this! :)

We've been able to stay busy making plenty of cheese, and we'll continue to make through October, possibly November. Our goal for the year, to have at least 400 wheels of cheese in our cooler before we take the winter off!

Wow! Congratulations on your awards! You must be so proud! I should have been a judge, I LOVE cheese, and have eaten my fair share of it (much to my hips' dismay!!).

Good luck accomplishing your 400 wheels, I know you can do it!!

Congratulations on your awards! Well done!

I confess that until I stumbled across your blog, I subscribed to the common UK prejudice that the 'Mercans don't make cheese, just Monterey Jack.

I'll look out for some real cheese next time I'm in the US.
