The panel of judges has spoken! The winners of the 2017 Adopt-an-Alp-contest are (in alphabetical order): Aperitivo, Sigonas, The Cheese Lady.

This was the toughest one for the panel so far. We had almost double the entries compared to the year before. And many contestants had put in enormous efforts to promote transhumance.

And here are the winners’ reactions:

Shelley Fay Essebaggers Lewis, The Cheeselady in Muskegon (MI).
Evan Talen, Aperitivo in Grand Rapids (MI).

The 3 winners will go to Switzerland and visit their Alps this summer.
