Brian Jackson
Brian started working part time in a cheese plant at the age of 16, just to earn money to buy a car. He was one of four children of a single father and learned the value of hard work early on. He also learned early on that making cheese was something he enjoyed enough to make his life's work. Today, 38 years later, he's still enjoying it and takes pride in being able to count himself among the ranks of Wisconsin's elite Master Cheesemakers. Currently working as a production manager at Nasonville Dairy, he's a three-time graduate of the Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® program, with certifications in Monterey jack, cheddar, brick and Colby and this year, adding certifications in muenster and gouda. "No matter what profession you're in, you have to keep perfecting your skills," he says.
