Leelanau Cheese’s aged raclette beat out over 1.200 entries to take “Best in Show” at the 24th annual American Cheese Society competition in Burlington, VT.

With a 27% increase in entries this year and over 200 cheesemakers competing, the Hoyt’s faced stiff competition, but if you’ve ever tasted their aged raclette, you know that the judges made the right decision.

And, amid all this hoop-la, their raclette – once again – came in first at the Michigan State Fair.

Congratulations, Anne and John!
