Award Winners

Cheers For The Cheesery!

One of our longtime members — Kennebec Cheesery in Sidney — has been honored with a Yankee Magazine Editor’s Choice Food Award for 2017!

Their Chèvre Rolled in Herbs de Provence won top honors for Maine alongside one of Stonewall Kitchen’s sauces. According to Yankee Magazine:

Honorees are chosen for making exceptional products that meet the Yankee standard of quality. As with previous years, the honor should be considered “an award of excellence rather than a single, best-in-category competition-style approach…”

Congratulations to chesse maker Jean Koons and everyone at the Cheesery on this achievement!
