Fourth generation cheese maker Jean Rossard stepped down from his Montchevre goat cheese factory in Belmont, Wisconsin, USA in 2018. But he was not quite ready for retirement so when his son Simon became interested in raising dairy goats, Jean took the chance to pass on his knowledge to the next generation.
