We’ve won some pretty amazing awards for our cheese recently. And not to brag or anything, but we have won well over 600 awards for our cheese and dairy products throughout our 101-year history. So in honor of our Monterey Jack and Colby Jack cheeses winning Best of Class in their respective categories at the U.S. Championship Cheese Contest®, here’s a photo of one of our other award-winners.

Albert Haedinger

Albert Haedinger, one of our many cheesemakers in the 1940s-1950s, won the 1953 National Cheddar Cheese Scoring Contest, an event held by the National Dairy Congress. Albert was the first cheesemaker to receive this trophy. The following year the trophy was awarded to another TCCA cheesemaker, Donley Lommen. From 1957 to 1954, four TCCA cheesemakers won the contest’s top honor.

We always knew our cheese was really tasty and made by the best cheesemakers, then and now, but it’s nice to hear it from the experts.
