Master Cheesemakers At Foremost Farms USA Cooperative

Scott Navarre
Scott Navarre
A big fan of classic American cheeses, Scott got his first taste of the industry as a child, when he would drop off lunch for his dad at the local cheese plant. Eventually, he learned to make the cheese himself, becoming a third generation cheesemaker and starting down a path that would lead him to the Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® program. A 2016 graduate, he's now certified in cheddar and monterey jack. "I've learned that there is a blend of science and craftsmanship involved in the process of making cheese," says Scott. While this was his first time through the Master's program, he's already planning to return. "I'd like to work toward a certification in colby," he says. "It's one of my favorite cheeses and, having grown up in Colby, Wis., it would mean a lot to me."
