Vermont cheesemakers took home 38 awards at the American Cheese Society's annual competition in Denver last week. Only Wisconsin and California bested the Green Mountain State's showing, with 119 and 51 award-winning cheeses, respectively.

Spring Brook Farm/Farms for City Kids' Tarentaise Reserve took top honors for Best in Show, while Jasper Hill Farm's Harbison nabbed the bronze award in that category.

Vermont Creamery's cultured butters, crème fraÎche and mascarpone also scored at the top of their categories. Other first-place finishes went to cheeses from Cabot Creamery Cooperative, which totaled eight awards; Maplebrook Farm (three awards); Consider Bardwell Farm (two awards); and Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company (two awards), among many others.

Huzzah!
