We know there are lots of cheese-of-the-month clubs, cheese delivery services, and wine and cheese subscriptions out there to choose from. That’s why we’ve designed our cheese subscription boxes with your needs in mind. Our monthly pairing box features American artisan cheese, gourmet crackers, and an accompaniment like charcuterie. It’s like getting a cheese board in a box each month!

Here’s how our cheese subscription boxes can help you live your best cheese life.

Each cheese of the month delivery features American artisan cheese for you to discover. 


Before launching Cheese Grotto, founder Jessica Sennet worked as a cheesemonger and cheesemaker in the U.S. and France. Along the way, she built a network of small-scale dairies making cheese using traditional methods and sustainable agricultural practices.

That network became the basis for the cheeses in our online store and our subscription boxes. Selections may include creamy goat’s milk Brie, nutty Alpine styles, savory clothbound cheddars, pungent blues, and pillowy washed rinds, all sourced with intention and care.

The cheese subscription comes in different sizes to fit your household. 


We know that people eat cheese differently. Some like to nibble on a single wedge till it’s gone, while others are all about weekly cheese board dinners. Some folks live alone, while others have a house full of people to feed.

We offer different sized cheese subscription packages so you’ll always have the perfect amount of cheese for your household—and each package is sized to fit perfectly in your Cheese Grotto! Stored properly inside a refrigerated Grotto, your cheese can last for up to three weeks.

We customize each delivery according to your preferences. 

With our cheese subscription, we wanted to offer a wide selection of exciting artisan cheeses. But we know that not every cheese is for everyone.

That’s why we kick off your membership with a brief survey about the kinds of cheeses you love (and those you might like to avoid). Not a blue cheese person? That’s okay! Can’t handle cow’s milk? We’ve got it covered! Looking for hard, long-aged varieties with little to no lactose? No problem!

This customization extends to the crackers and accompaniments that come with each box, too. We’re happy to accommodate dietary restrictions—just let us know if you’d prefer a vegetarian, gluten-free, or nut-free subscription.

Once you submit your personal preferences, we use them to curate cheeses you’ll love. We keep track of the wedges you’ve already received, so you’ll always be surprised with a tasty new variety. We also have a deep roster of pairing items to match each cheese, ranging from sweet chocolate to savory charcuterie to crisp, puckery pickles.

Our cheese subscription box offers the option to add gourmet crackers and curated pairings each month.

Cheese pairing is a delicious journey, and half the fun is trying new accompaniments to see how the flavors play with your favorite wheels. In addition to a rotating selection of gourmet crackers, each cheese in our Monthly Artisan Cheese Subscription Box comes with the option to add perfectly curated pairings for you to try.

We set out to source the best small-batch accoutrements from regional makers around the U.S. Since we started including accompaniments with our subscription boxes, we’ve featured a ton of amazing artisanal goodies to make your cheese taste even better, and we have even more in store.

Subscribe and you’ll get a different accompaniment to pair with each cheese you receive. We’ve selected goods from some of the top artisan makers we’ve worked with over more than 10 years in the cheese world. They source the highest-quality gourmet ingredients, make their products in small batches using traditional methods, and blow us away with unparalleled flavor that will take your cheeses to the next level.

Here are some of the goodies you’ll get in our monthly pairing box:





You can pause, adjust, or cancel your monthly cheese deliveries at any time.

A great thing about our cheese subscription service is that it’s a super easy way to commit to eating great cheese from regional dairies. Recurring payments mean you don’t have to remember to reorder. With cheeses and pairings shipped right to your door each month, you never even have to leave the house to enjoy a fantastic cheese plate.

We know that a subscription service is a long-term commitment, and our hectic lifestyles can make that challenging. That’s why we made our program flexible to fit your schedule.

You can adjust your ship date to ensure you’ll be home for your monthly delivery. If you’re away for a longer period, you can choose to skip a month—just let us know! And if you find that your current package provides you with too much (or not enough) cheese, you can easily adjust the size.

We ship your cheese so that it’s perfectly fresh and delicious when it arrives at your door.

Our logistics team cuts many of our cheeses to order and packs each box with ice packs and an insulated liner to ensure it gets to you in perfect condition. You’ll receive a shipping notification with a tracking number for each monthly or quarterly shipment. We work with carriers like UPS and FedEx to secure the lowest costs possible to get your cheese to you quickly and efficiently.

In order to provide the best possible shipping rates all year, we use two-day shipping in the colder months (October through April) and overnight shipping during the warmer months (May through September). If your package is damaged or lost in transit, simply reach out to us at so we can figure out a resolution. Learn more on our Shipping Policy page.

We include pairing suggestions and recipe ideas with each shipment. full cheese board on slate with pairings

Each shipment comes with a quick and easy guide to storing and serving cheese, so you’ll know how to take care of your wedges right out of the box. We’ll also send digital tasting literature featuring wine and beverage pairing suggestions, recipe ideas, and educational info for that month’s cheese to your inbox. And of course, you have our website’s entire archive of cheese pairing, storage, recipe, and style guides to learn from, too.

We think of our subscription as a two-way street. You receive our personalized cheese expertise, and learning which cheeses you like, don’t like as much, and really love makes us better mongers. Connecting cheese fans with amazing artisan varieties is one of our favorite things to do!

Our artisan cheese subscription box makes a great gift.

Everyone loves edible gifts, but a cheese subscription is the gift that keeps on giving! Customize our Monthly Artisan Cheese Subscription Box to send 3 cheeses per month until you cancel. We also offer pre-paid monthly subscriptions in 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month options that save you money.

You can also give a whole year of cheese with our Meet the Makers Subscription Box, which sends the recipient two pounds of cheese on a fixed schedule four times a year. With this option, subscribers get exclusive access to virtual live events with the cheesemakers featured in each box! If you can’t make the live events, we’ll send you a recording so you can enjoy the cheese and learn from the makers at your leisure.

The value of our cheese subscription box sets it apart from the competition.

A lot of hard work on the farm, in the creamery, and along the supply chain goes into making the artisan cheeses we include in each subscription box. Raising animals on pasture, crafting cheeses with unique terroir, paying our farmers, cheesemakers, and workers what they’re worth, and shipping the best gourmet cheese in the country right to your doorstep doesn’t come cheap.

The value our subscriptions offer is about more than just cheese: One of our favorite things about offering subscriptions is that we form an ongoing relationship with cheese lovers like you. When you subscribe, you become a member of our cheese community—and you join the movement to support small-scale American cheesemakers and dairy farmers, too.

Plus, there are perks. Each new subscriber will receive 15 free sheets of reusable cheese paperemblazoned with our logo and a guide to cutting different types of cheese shapes with their first box. This durable, sustainable paper can be gently washed with warm water and soap, air dried, and reused for up to one year!

We make a point to price our subscription boxes so they’re as accessible as possible. Here’s how the value breaks down by box size.​

Shipping Details


If you have purchased cheese hardware from our Grotto collection, it usually takes us 1 to 3 business days to ship your order, unless otherwise listed on the respective product page.

Cheese Orders

As the cheeses are a fresh product, we want to ensure the quickest transit time as possible, so your order arrives in the best possible condition.  Express shipping costs range from $25 - $55 depending on the package size, delivery window, location and carrier. We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

Please note: cheese ships from our cheese warehouse and hardware ships from our hardware warehouse. If you are purchasing both hardware and cheese, there will be a shipping charge for the cheese portion of your order.

International Orders

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
