A small northern Indiana dairy processor has made a name for itself by capturing first place in a popular dairy foods contest at the World Dairy Expo.

Amish Country Dairy, which started in late 2020 and is based in Shipshewana, is a winner in WDE's Championship Dairy Product Contest. According to Harry Stutzman, co-owner, the local dairy won first place in the open class flavored milk (non-chocolate and non-strawberry) division with its whole milk coffee with maple syrup.

Amish Country Dairy also took third place in the same division with its whole milk salted caramel product.

"We're very excited about it," Stutzman said.

The Championship Dairy Product Contest is known as the only all-dairy product competition of its kind in the world. Over 1,500 entries were received for cheese, butter, fluid milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, ice cream, sour cream, sherbet, cultured milk, sour cream dips, whipping cream, whey and creative/innovative products from dairy.

Judging was held Aug. 23-25 at the MATC Culinary Arts School in Madison, Wis.

Winners will be formally honored at the World Dairy Expo in early October.
