Great cheese was born on Massachusetts grass.
In 1624, the first dairy cows were brought to the Boston area by the settlers from England, birthing artisanal cheesemaking in America. Great cheeses are still made here, on our lands, between the stone walls and the sky. Our 22 cheesemakers have won more awards per capita than any state in the nation. MA Cheese Guild members celebrate those achievements and support our artisans.
