In Seattle’s Pike Place Market and New York City’s Flatiron District, visitors to Beecher’s glass walled cheesemaking kitchens witness first hand the craftingof their signature favorite, Flagship cheese, as well as many of the other award-winning cheeses Beecher’s has to offer. By starting with fresh, pure milk from local farms and applying the traditional methods used by cheesemakers for thousands of years, Beecher’s cheeses are free of artificial ingredients making them just as delicious as the milk they are made from.
In 2003, Kurt Beecher Dammeier opened his first Beecher’s Handmade Cheese in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market. For Kurt, Beecher’s fulfilled an ambition beyond just making great cheese. He has long felt passionately about eating food free of harmful additives and preservatives. That’s why everything produced by Beecher’s, from the handcrafted cheeses to the delicious side dishes and crackers, is authentic, original, full-flavored food made with ingredients they trust and are proud of.
In keeping with Beecher’s commitment to pure food, Beecher’s donates 1% of every purchase to The Beecher's Foundation — which inspires kids to make healthy food choices for life. In the foundation’s free Pure Food Kids workshops, fourth and fifth grade students become food detectives, learning the skills to read nutrition labels and ingredient lists, and learning to recognize misleading messaging in food commercials and advertising.
