Renard's is a family-owned and operated business that is now in its third generation of cheesemakers.

The Renard family is committed to continuing the tradition of hand-crafted specialty cheese while producing quality, gourmet cheese that is perfectly blended. Chris earned his Master Cheesemaker Certification in 2014 – a nationally acclaimed title. While many things have changed over the years, the Renard's recipe remains the same. This precise art has awarded the Renard's not only a reputation of great standards but also a product that they are proud to put their name on.
