GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- WITH more than 1,700 cheeses entered, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports a record number of entries at the upcoming U.S. Cheese Championships.
Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association executive director John Umhoefer says the number reflects growth in the variety of cheeses being produced.
Judging is Tuesday and Wednesday morning at Lambeau Field and is free and open to the public. Entry to the grand champion judging costs $25.
The 2011 grand champion was a goat cheese by LaClare Family Farms of Chilton.
The U.S. Cheese Championship event was held in Green Bay for years, but it was held in Madison and Milwaukee before moving back to Lambeau Field in 2009.
