2014 Montchevré Farmer Awards
There is no question that Montchevré’s reputation for quality is, in part, thanks to the hard work of our 360+ milk suppliers. In recognition of our farmers’ outstanding achievements and continuous contribution to the success of Montchevré and our community, we held an Awards Ceremony at each of our annual year-end farm meetings. Farmers were recognized for their excellent milk quality, growth, and commitment to the goat milk industry. Awards varied from Rookie of the Year, to Most Improved, Most Resilient, Montchevré Ambassador and more!
Montchevré’s Producer of the Year Award was presented to Gary & Penny Libberton of South Wayne, Wisconsin (pictured below, right). We have had the privilege of partnering with Gary and Penny since 2001 and we are so grateful for their hard work and dedication to Montchevré. The Libbertons have a beautiful farm with a fantastic herd average that produces milk with high protein, consistent butter fat, and a plate count that’s systematically low.
