October is American Cheese Month!


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


October 1- 31 (annually)


Wherever there is cheese and wherever there are cheese lovers.  American Cheese Month is your chance to spread the word, experience great American cheeses, and help support and promote great cheese, local communities, and passionate producers.


Everyone who loves cheese!  Get creative – we’ve got some ideas to get you started on our Get Involved page.
