Minnesota’s Redhead Creamery Wins Gold & Silver At World Cheese Awards
Redhead Creamery may be located in a rural Minnesota town of 600 or so, but now it’s officially on the world stage.
The Brooten, Stearns County cheesemaker, which recently entered two cheeses in the the Guild of Fine Food’s World Cheese Awards, has announced that both entries won medals in their categories: Gold and Silver.

Award-Winning Cheeses: Lucky Linda And St. Anthony
Lucky Linda earned Gold as Mild traditional Cheddar and St. Anthony Silver as Hard cows’ milk cheese.
Standing Out Among Hundreds Of Entries
Taking home a silver in the “Hard cows’ milk cheese” category was a cheese Redhead Creamery calls “St. Anthony”; the gold medal winner was “Lucky Linday” in the “Mild traditional Cheddar” category.
St. Anthony’s Remarkable Achievement
The creamery says that although St. Anthony was “in the middle of a huge category of 176 entries,” it ended up coming in 7th of the U.S. entries.
Gratitude And Acknowledgment From The Creamery
“Congratulations to TEAM CHEESE and THANK YOU for all our fans in spirit or as customers,” a Facebook announcement reads. “We appreciate you!”
From Humble Beginnings To Cheese Excellence
Redhead made its first batch of cheese in 2013 with little more than a “childhood cheesemaking dream,” its website says. The owners get their milk from the family dairy operation, Jer-Lindy Farms.
Experience Redhead Creamery’s Craftsmanship
Today, Redhead makes cheese “2-3 days a week” and has expanded to include an on-site cheese shop, with tours every weekend for those who want to see the nitty-gritty of artisan cheesemaking.
Tasting The Winners: Online Store Offerings
Curious how the two award winners taste? You can find both among a wide selection of cheeses on the creamery’s online store.
