Welcome to the Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance!
We aim to bring fresh artisinal cheeses from our family farms to your family’s table.
Who We Are
The Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance is made up of 12 working family farms and producers, each creating their own brand of artisanal and farmstead cheeses. In addition, we have several Associate Members who support the Alliance -- from wineries and stores that carry our cheese, to accommodations that send their guests out for an "on-the-farm" experience. We invite you to tour the Trail and enjoy our cheeses and the products and services that compliment it so well!
Visiting Our Farms
Want to head out to the farm? First, check each members page for farm hours. They differ from farm to farm! Then use our Google Map to get around! Note that the farms with a yellow marker are non-destination farms. The red markers are farms with regular hours!
While many of our farms keep the same hours year round, some of our destination farms reduce their hours or even close for the off season. And remember, it's not a bad idea to call first, because these are small, family farms and sometimes emergencies do come up.
Do you love the Cheese Alliance? Does your business use or support the Alliance? Do you just love our cheese? Then, for $100 your business could be an Associate Member of the Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance!
For your membership, you get mentioned and promoted on our site and Facebook, with a link. And you are a preferred vendor when people ask. In addition, we will carry your literature in our shops and farms.
