What makes a food definitively artisanal? First, the creator must be a master at their craft, typically having studied and undergone an apprenticeship, and preferably having proven expertise in their field. Next, the ingredients must be fresh, of the highest quality, and local. Artisanal foods are typically free of over processing and are made in small batches using traditional techniques yielding handmade, gourmet, and frequently organic items.

At The Artisan Cheese Factory we strive through continuous improvement to be the industry’s premier leader in quality, producing the freshest, all-natural, artisan cheeses delivered daily to local grocery stores, farmers markets and restaurants. The Artisan Cheese Factory will have a positive and transformative impact on the community by providing competitive job opportunities, charitable functions, and education on artisan cheeses.
