The Members of the WNC Cheese Trail are a diverse group of general curd nerds, farmers, cheese makers, specialty food producers, brewers, restaurant owners, and beyond! Though our focus is on the promotion of the artisan cheeses produced in Western North Carolina, many of our Members create complimentary products and experiences which enrich our local economy and food community. We also have room for support from cheese enthusiasts. Check out the four levels of membership below for more information and registration links for each tier!
