The New York State Farmstead & Artisan Cheese Makers Guild has begun its 2015-2016 membership drive.  If you're a cheese maker, aspiring cheese maker, cheese lover, food retailer, restaurant owner or chef, or owner of a cheese-related business, the Guild welcomes your support.  To request a membership packet, please send us a message on our Contact page or email the Guild at 

Our Mission as a Farmstead & Artisan Cheese Makers Guild is to foster a strong and vibrant farmstead cheese making sector in our State, & to support its growth.

  • We see our Guild as not only a kind of support group for cheese makers - who often have technical questions about the cheese making process - but also as a face to the rest of the world:  here we can come together across the miles that separate our NY farms and share our pride in our products.
  • We welcome your support - at farmers' markets around the state, at retail outlets, and as cheese lovers who join the Guild as Friends.‚Äč
