Randy LaGrander
It’s no joke: Randy had his cheesemaking license before his driver’s license. Starting alongside his parents in their family-owned cheese factory, Randy climbed the ranks at LaGrander’s Hillside Dairy, a company he now runs. His certifications for Colby, Monterey jack and cheddar help him continually improve the specialty cheeses he crafts today.

Growing up as a city kid, cheesemaking was never on Dan’s radar. But after moving to rural Stanley, Wisconsin, he decided to pursue work at a cheese plant. He earned his license quickly, and eventually received Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® certifications for Monterey jack and Colby.
