Your Passport to American Cheese Month + Deals @ Fairfield Cheese Co.

20 Sep

It’s very sad to say this, but October is just around the corner.  Well, maybe not so sad!   You know what that means, right?  Yes, it’s American Cheese Month…the third one, actually.  What does that mean for us, the consumer of cheese in all its forms (stinky or non-stinky)?  It means a month (and mouth) full of killer deals with the American Cheese Month Passport Program.  Just buy the pass for $10 starting on October 1 at any participating store (30 of them) like CT’s very own Fairfield Cheese Company, and receive a 20-40% discount off the featured American cheese of the day for the entire month of October.  You can use the passport at any of the stores so if you’re in NYC and need some cheese, get your curd on.  Plus, the passport sales benefit the American Cheese Education Foundation, a nonprofit that helps to give scholarships to American cheesemakers and provides educational opportunities.
