The MA Cheese Guild is a dynamic group of Massachusetts cheese lovers: Cheese Eaters (all of us!), Cheese Makers and Cheese Sellers. Among us all, we’ve got enough questions and information to help us enjoy our cheeses in traditional, creative, and unusual ways. Join us and share, learn, educate and taste!
