  Jeanne Carpenter  

Jeanne Carpenter is a cheese geek, but she didn’t start out that way. Raised on Velveeta on a family farm in Wisconsin, after college she worked as an award-winning journalist and spokesperson for the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture. In 2007 she started her own public relations company to promote artisan cheese, and in 2009 launched Wisconsin Cheese Originals, a member-based organization dedicated to discovering, tasting and learning more about Wisconsin artisan cheeses. She is the author of “Cheese Underground,” a popular blog that gives cheese-starved readers everywhere the inside scoop on America’s Dairyland.
