Celebrate American Cheese Month


OCTOBER IS AMERICAN CHEESE MONTH!

The American Cheese Society American Cheese Month is a grassroots celebration of North America’s delicious and diverse cheeses, and the farmers, cheesemakers, retailers, cheesemongers, and chefs who bring them to your table.


Each American Cheese Month, we aim to:

• Recognize and raise awareness of the quality and diversity of American cheeses.

• Support and promote great cheese, local foods, family farms, traditional methods, and sustainable production models

• Generate funding for the nonprofit American Cheese Education Foundation.

• American Cheese Month events are planned and led by anyone who loves great cheese, from cheese professionals to cheese enthusiasts, and events take place around the country, and sometimes internationally.
