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.
Planning an Event?
While ACS does not organize individual events, we celebrate and promote them on our website. We encourage you to get creative! If you hold an event, please consider donating a portion of proceeds to the American Cheese Education Foundation. Your donation helps to support critical industry research, education, and scholarships.
October Instagram Takeover
This American Cheese Month, we’re giving you a special look into the lives and work of American cheesemakers with four Instagram takeovers! Each week in October, an ACS member/producer will take over our Instagram feed to give you a glimpse into their world. Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/american_cheese_society/
