OUR TRADE PARTNERS
Any cheesemaker, chef, and food lover knows: The cheese never stands alone. Cowgirl is part of a passionate community dedicated to supporting each other and the craftsmanship of artisan cheese.
American Cheese Society
Founded in 1983 as a national grassroots group to help American cheese makers make better cheese, the ACS has grown a thriving community of makers, mongers, retailers, educators, wholesalers, and enthusiasts. The group provides education, networking, and an annual conference to strengthen the bonds within the artisan community.
Our founders, Sue Conley and Peggy Smith, along with many of our Cowgirl team have served on ACS’s committees and board.
Now, more than ever, the artisan cheese community needs the support of cheese lovers everywhere. Visit www.cheesesociety.org or search #supportourcheesemakers on social media to learn more.
California Artisan Cheese Guild
California has always attracted the dreamers, the romantics, and the trail blazers in all industries, no more so than food. There’s a reason why America’s food revolution started in Cowgirls’ home state.
The Golden State is the country’s largest source of dairy and home to a thriving and growing community of artisan makers. The Guild empowers those within this passionate community with continuing education, professional networking, and opportunities to showcase all the amazing cheese through popular events such as the California Artisan Cheese Festival (March) and the San Francisco Cheese Festival (September).
Now, more than ever, the artisan cheese community needs the support of cheese lovers everywhere. Visit www.cacheeseguild.org or search #BuyCACheese on social media to learn more.
