McGrath Cheese Company hand craft every batch of cheese using only the best milk available from small local dairies. We place the highest value in the relationships we have with our farmers as they are the backbone to our cheese’s success. The craft of making artisan cheese is an age old tradition that we strive to pay homage to with every batch we make.
Cheese Maker Colin McGrath is the founder of McGrath Cheese Company. Colin began his career in the food industry at the young age of 15. His work in restaurants fed his passion for food and led him to study at and get his degree from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. Colin’s work in the food industry then led him down a different path as he fell in love with the art, science, and tradition of making cheese.
