About the Guild

The Wisconsin Artisan Cheesemaker Guild brings current and beginning Wisconsin artisan and farmstead cheesemakers together for networking and educational opportunities. We are a member-based organization with annual dues. To view an upcoming list of Guild Events, visit our  Events page.

While other state guilds encourage consumers and/or supplier members to join, the Wisconsin Guild is only for current and beginning cheesemakers. We are a sister organization to Wisconsin Cheese Originals, a member organization catering to cheese education for consumers and the cheese industry. Together,  we celebrate Wisconsin artisan and farmstead cheesemakers.



All Wisconsin farmstead and artisan beginning and current cheesemakers are invited to join the Guild. Annual dues are $150. Each member company pays only one annual fee. That means if your company has two or more employees, you only pay $150, and all employees are invited to attend or participate in all activities. Some activities, such as specific educational workshops or tours, have additional fees to cover expenses.

What does membership include? Guild members are invited to educational and networking events. All members receive a quarterly newsletter.
