What do Des Moines and cheese have in common? The annual American Cheese Society conference. Deeann and Jackie learned, laughed, networked, and ate lots of amazing cheese for 4 days in Des Moines. Deeann spent most of her time in food safety classes learning the science and regulations safety in a cheese plant. Jackie spent her time in marketing, networking classes. Above all it was a great networking event. It was fun to see people we have gotten to know in the cheese world and meet new people. A lot of connections were made with people that can help us with the building, equipment, cultures, and marketing of our CannonBelles cheese. To end the conference, we got to go on the great cheese race! If you see Deeann or Jackie, ask them about this crazy way to end a great conference. We look forward to going to this conference in Denver next year.
What’s coming next you ask? Well, we are working on plans to make our first ‘official’ batch of cheese curds on Aug 18th at the University of Minnesota cheese plant. When all those details get solidified, look for information on how to get some of our tasty cheese curds!
