Randy Pitman
Randy Pitman
Randy grew up on a dairy farm in Green County and began making cheese when he was 17. He learned how to craft Swiss and muenster from expert cheesemakers Jim Curran and Ivan Gobeli. Randy has owned and operated Mill Creek Cheese for over 30 years and received his Master certifications in muenster and queso quesadilla in 2010. He enjoys inventing, or recreating new cheeses from old traditional styles. The saying, "You have to do what you love and love what you do," is very true of this Master Cheesemaker. He continues to expand and learn, with the help of his family, employees and the CDR and enjoys every minute of his time making cheese.
