Mission, Directors, Sponsors


Yep, this is us, a cross-section of life in Massachusetts, from city cheesemakers to mountain-top cheesemakers, from toddlers to college-kids to grandparents who love cheese. From savvy business people who help us survive and thrive to those of us who love to feed great cheese to our friends. Now, to the formal stuff:

The Massachusetts Cheese Guild, Inc. is a Massachusetts not-for-profit corporation (501(c)(6)) with this mission:

  • Advance the production, image, and enjoyment of premier cheeses from Massachusetts;
  • Encourage and support the production of artisan and farmstead cheese, including cultured dairy products such as yogurt, made from Massachusetts milk or curd by Massachusetts cheese makers;
  • Educate the public and those in the cheese business about Massachusetts cheeses.
