WHAT IS AMERICAN CHEESE MONTH?
In 2019, The American Cheese Education Foundation (ACEF) Board of Directors voted to move American Cheese Month from October to May to better support the needs of cheesemakers and retailers.
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 ACEF
