Stemming from five generations of cheese makers, the Pecoraro family began its Lineage of fine cheese making in their native Campania Region of Italy. In the early 1970’s the Pecoraro family brought the art of traditional cheese making methods to their new home in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where they continue the tradition today. Decades-old techniques, as well as a passion for uncompromising quality, have been the cornerstone of which the Pecoraro family has built their name on.
Pecoraro Cheese is still a family owned and operated business. Today, much of the cheese making process is monitored and manufactured by specialized machinery brought in from Italy that mimics the time old technique of the “hand pulling” process. The Pecoraro family continues to hold firm to its values of making the best artisanal, premium whole Milk cheese. Unlike many of our competitors, Pecoraro Cheese is one of the few original fresh cheese manufacturers who remains in Brooklyn today.
