Fairfield Cheese Company

Owners Laura Downey and Chris Palumbo have more in common than just being long-time friends and community-minded residents of Fairfield, CT.

We share an obsessive passion for food. We love and respect good food, real food…food that comes from the heart as well as the hands.

Naturally, that much passion, energy and knowledge has to be shared – the two of us enjoy educating customers as much as we enjoy offering up delectable goodies from around New England, and the world. Ask anyone who’s attended one of our Cheese School classes – you’ll walk away a different person. We have both earned the title Certified Cheese Professional, a designation given by the American Cheese Society.

We pride ourselves on supporting the American cheesemaker, as well as other artisan food producers nationwide and worldwide. We love forging relationships with small farms and other producers in order to bring you the finest cheese and specialty foods available.

We are members of The American Cheese Society, the leading organization promoting and supporting cheese in North America. We’re also members of Slow Food USA, and the Vermont Cheese Council. We were awarded the Snail of Approval from our local Slow Food chapter.
