Master Cheesemakers At Chalet Cheese Cooperative


Jamie Fahrney
Jamie Fahrney
Jamie received his cheesemaking license in 1985 after serving as an apprentice under the legendary Wisconsin cheesemaker, Al Deppeler. He continued under the expertise of Master Cheesemaker Myron Olson at Chalet Cheese Cooperative, the only U.S. plant that produces limburger cheese. Today, he holds Master Cheesemaker certifications for baby Swiss and brick cheeses. Jamie says it's the combination of the incredible challenge, knowledge and intuition required to consistently produce top quality cheese that hooked him early on. Jamie and Chalet's crowning moment came in the 2006 World Championship Cheese contest, where he received the first place blue ribbon in the baby Swiss class.
