At Mill City Cheesemongers, we are committed to supporting small-scale producers of artisan and farmstead cheese and specialty foods, with a primary focus on producers from New England. Our mission is to create a community of like-minded people who appreciate the value of sustainable agriculture, sustainable food, and traditional cheesemaking methods. We believe that all of these things are essential to the preservation of local agricultural economies and therefore to improving access to good food for everyone.
Who we are:
Beth Falk is the owner of Mill City Cheesemongers. A long-time lover of farms and food, Beth started her career in the world of environmental law. Life happened, things changed, and she moved on to specialty food in 2013. Beth is now the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Cheese Guild, a member of the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts, and an active participant in the local food movement in New England. Her latest claim to fame is a 2nd-place finish at the 2017 Cheesemonger Invitational!
Marianne Gries is a new cheesemonger and a life-long cheese lover. Marianne’s previous work experience includes retail, restaurants, and non-profits. Marianne loves interacting with customers in the shop, but when she’s off the clock spends her time cooking, reading, knitting, and enjoying quality time with her wife and barking dogs.
Jennifer Babcock is a Mom, scientist, animal lover, and all around nerd girl. She will ALWAYS laugh at your cheese puns!
Lauren Grace is an herbalist, a curator of vintage clothing, and a former vet tech. She has a terrific palate, and loves to experiment with cheese pairings.
Roz Cummins is a food writer who has worked in every possible permutation of food co-op, natural foods store, and granola-type restaurant. Her work has appeared in Boston Magazine, Grist, and elsewhere.
