Ranee has been a cheesemaker for over 30 years, specializing in hard cheeses. She taught at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls for 29 years. During this time, she managed the University Dairy Plant and taught the Dairy Technology curriculum. For the past 25 years, Ranee has been volunteering through various programs to teach dairy technology in developing countries. Thus far, she have worked in approximately 25 different countries, logging over 4,000 hours.
Neville’s cheese experience extends 35+ years in the dairy industry. He founded CheezSorce, LLC in St. Louis, MO in 2001, filling a need for new entrants to midsize and micro dairy business. Outside of managing the company, he is previous Board Member of the American Cheese Society, and an International & Domestic Cheese Judge. Needless to say, Neville is not only a man who critiques cheese, but an avid scientific and artistic creator.
