April was an exciting month for COWS Creamery as their Avonlea Clothbound Cheddar was selected as Grand Champion Overall at the 2022 SIAL International Cheese Competition in Montreal, Quebec. Avonlea was selected out of 148 cheeses by a panel of 13 judges.
COWS Creamery won a total of 5 awards this year, with the Avonlea Clothbound Cheddar, Appletree Smoked Cheddar, 2-Year-Old Cheddar, and 1-Year-Old Cheddar all receiving first place in their respective categories, and most notably, the Avonlea Clothbound Cheddar also being named Grand Champion Overall.
“The award is the end result of having access to a top-notch dairy industry on Prince Edward Island and working with a dedicated team of co-workers who strive to make top-notch cheese,” says COWS Creamery Cheesemaker, Armand Bernard.
All COWS Creamery Cheddars and Butters are made with milk from dairy farms across Prince Edward Island.
