Established in 1978, LaClare Farms® brand is a family-owned and operated creamery that produces award-winning goat milk and mixed milk cheeses. Founders Larry and Clare Hedrich and four of their five children run LaClare Farms® brand, including managing the milking of over 400 goats twice daily. In 2011 head cheesemaker Katie Fuhrmann became the youngest cheesemaker—and only the second female cheesemaker—in history to be awarded Best in Show at the United States Champion Cheese Contest. LaClare Farms® brand continues to push the boundaries of cheesemaking and collaboration while maintaining the high quality and craftsmanship for which Wisconsin cheese is known.
