Who We Are

Elm City Cheese was founded by Polish immigrants in 1896 in New Haven, Connecticut. Originally, Elm City Cheese was a dairy and sold many different products, including various types of cheeses. Over the years, Elm City gradually narrowed their product line. Instead of selling a large variety of dairy products, they concentrated on producing various types of cheeses. Today, we exclusively manufacture grated cheese. By focusing on a narrow product segment, we can produce a relatively large amount of a quality product. In fact, we produce over 1 million pounds a year!

The business has been passed down through several generations of the family, surviving the Depression and two world wars. Today, Elm City is still making cheese in nearby Hamden, CT.
