Cooperstown Cheese Company

Bob Sweitzer and Sharon Tomaselli started making cheese as Cooperstown Cheese Company nearly three years ago, but in that short time were able to develop a wonderful alpine style cheese and win a second place ribbon at the American Cheese Society annual competition in 2009. Toma Celena, named after the first person to taste it and love it, is a very complex semi-hard and natural rind cheese that is nutty and fragrant, yet has slightly sweet undertones. The flavor lingers and is bold enough to match well with meaty red wines and broad enough to match well with spicy brews.

Cooperstown Cheese Company is located in the northern foothills of the Catskills, where the cheese makers use only the most perfect milk for cheese making. This milk comes from a single herd of Brown Swiss cows, lovingly cared for and raised all naturally and without hormones.

Toma Celena is available at retail outlets like Ideal Cheese, The Big Cheese, Eli's, Zabar's, Dean and DeLuca, Fairway, Westside Market, Garden of Eden, Cobblestone, and of course, Stinky Brooklyn. For wholesale inquires, we deliver directly to NYC. Since restaurants generally need very fast service, they are very well served by the folks at Ideal Cheese who specialize in servicing the needs of restaurants and caterers.
