Chris Renard
A third-generation cheesemaker, Chris Renard is President of Renard's Rosewood Dairy, Inc. Chris chose to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather, Howard and father, Gary. A classic Wisconsin cheese plant, Rosewood Dairy specializes in handcrafted cheddar, colby, Monterey jack and string style mozzarella. A 2014 graduate of the Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® program, Chris is certified as a Master for cheddar and mozzarella. The decision to enter the program was easy, Chris notes. "I looked at it as something that would be good for the business and for our customers," he says. "I also saw it as a great opportunity for my own professional development. You can go for a Master's degree in other professions; cheesemaking is the profession I chose."
