Company description Fairfield & Greenwich Cheese Companies are award-winning cheese and specialty food shops located in Fairfield County, CT. Our mission is to offer our customers the best farmstead and artisanally produced cheeses, charcuterie and specialty pantry items, with an emphasis on top-notch, approachable customer service. We strive to support the cheesemakers, craftspeople, and farmers who make and grow real food and honor traditional methods that are "good, clean and fair." 

Sourcing Food with Integrity
We love supporting the American cheesemaker, as well as other artisan food producers nationwide and smaller production traditional cheeses worldwide. We forge relationships with small farms, cheesemakers, importers, and distributors to bring you the finest cheese and specialty foods available. Our goal is to curate the best examples of classic European cheeses we can find and the most delicious New World cheeses being made today. The cheese has to be delicious but equally important it must be made in traditional ways and honor the animals, the land and the people who work it. 

Sharing our Expertise with Customers
Our staff is made up of people who are passionate about good food and providing a great customer service experience. Our team loves cheese and sharing it with customers. Every cheese has a story, a history, a farmer and a cheesemaker behind it and it is our job as cheesemongers to tell those stories. We do it every day behind the counter, every week in cheese school and at every event we have. It is truly the best part of our job.
