About Us

Based on old-world ideals with a loyalty to our family of local and international food producers, we are a small, independently run business dedicated to the time-honored traditions of the culinary and agricultural world.          

Established in 2003 in Brooklyn, we have worked directly with producers for more than 17 years in order to select cheeses at their peak of perfection. All along we have appreciated the seasonality of cheese production and have provided a constantly evolving array of goodies.  

Our small staff of knowledgeable cheesemongers are experts in the field who love teaching through taste. We prioritize education in the art of properly maintaining cheese so that you can be assured of receiving the highest-quality products available. 

In 2012, we opened our second location, now our flagship store, in the Gramercy area of Manhattan where we have grown into a neighborhood shop offering world class artisan cheeses, a delicious prepared foods menu, shopping for unique local small batch and international products and an exciting, fun and educational space, – the Homestead. Stop by for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and more... 


We look forward to seeing you soon.
