Meet Ben Novak, the New Owner of Vern’s Cheese

Ben Novak’s decision to take ownership of Vern's Cheese in 2023 was a well-considered one. His extensive cheese industry experience, rooted in a rich family tradition of cheesemaking, made him the perfect choice to lead Vern's into the future. In a world where competitors often sacrificed quality for price, Vern's always stood firm, putting quality above all else. This commitment to quality perfectly aligned with Ben’s legacy in cheese, one dating back to his great-grandfather George, a cheesemaker in the Crandon area.

Today, Ben is proud to carry the torch forward. He envisions making Vern's “the ultimate cheese connection,” a vision established in the company's history since 1964. Vern's will continue to prioritize quality and customer satisfaction while streamlining operations for the modern era.
