Gold Creek Farms in Woodland was a double winner, earning first place in the smoked cheddar category and a third place for its truffle butter. The Oolite Cheese Company in Manti and its Old Yeller cheese won second place in the blue-veined with rind category. And Beehive Cheese Company, Uintah, took second in the cheese curds with flavors category for hits Squeaky Bee Cheese Curds with Cajun.
