Welcome to the California Artisan Cheese Guild. We are an organization dedicated to the bounty of artisanal, specialty, and farmstead cheese made in the Golden State. The CACG is an organization designed to support and encourage the California cheesemaking community. This is accomplished by supporting the on-going education of cheesemakers and consumers, sharing resources, and celebrating the art and dedication to quality cheese.
