Best of Show 1st Place – Purple Ribbon goes to (Beecher's Handmade Cheese's Flagsheep)
Beecher's Flagsheep, a sheep's and cow's milk clothbound cheddar won the honor of Best in show at the American Cheese Society's annual conference and competition. It's the BEST cheese made in America in 2012. That honor goes to a super high quality cheddar that is impressive to say the least. It's also in demand as a result of that ranking and near impossible to get these days. Fortunately I was commissioned by the ACS to paint the top three awarded cheeses and that meant Beecher's sent me 3lbs of this highly sought out delicious cheese.
