The New York State Farmstead and Artisan Cheese Makers Guild was organized in November 2002 to foster a strong and vibrant farmstead artisan cheese-making sector in the state and to support its growth. Our goals include:

  • Encouraging excellence in New York State farmstead and artisanal cheeses;
  • Promoting and sustaining cheese making as a craft and livelihood within New York State;
  • Connecting small-scale cheese makers with a broad range of buyers, from brokers to chefs to consumers; and
  • Representing the interests of small-scale cheese makers to government agencies, the media and other audiences.

The Guild is organized under the Regional Farm & Food Project and governed by its own self-elected Board of Directors.
