WW Homestead Dairy won awards in both the American Cheese Society judging, in Denver, CO, and the Iowa State Fair Iowa Quality Dairy contest this past summer.
A record number of dairy products were entered in the ACS competition, 2,000+ entries from 281 different producers. In the flavored cheese curd class, WW Homestead Dairy placed 1st with their Chipotle Morita cheese curds, and 2nd with Jalapeno Ranch cheese curds. At the Iowa State Fair, WW Homestead Dairy placed 1st in the Cow Milk Cheeses class with their Bloody Mary cheese curds and 3rd with their White Cheddar cheese curds. In the Butter their Salted Butter placed 3rd.
“Ever since we began making and selling our cheese curds we have heard from our customers how great they are and how they brought back memories of the fresh, squeaky cheese curds they used to get from local creameries. These awards validate our belief that we have some of, if not the best cheese curds and butter around,” said Paul Weighner, co-owner of WW Homestead Dairy.
WW Homestead Dairy is a family run dairy processing plant, that began producing their first cheese curds the summer of 2011 and has since adopted the title of “The Cheese Curd Capital of Iowa”. All the milk used to produce their cheese curds, cheddar cheese, cream line milk, ice cream & butter comes from the Walleser & Weighner famiy dairy farms.
