Cheese comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and colors, whether it's a giant wheel, a wedge, or a chunk of blue. With around 2,000 varieties to choose from, you'd have to be pretty serious about your cheese to taste them all. While that might not be feasible unless you're traveling to the many cheese-making regions of the world (or it's your job to eat cheese), you can still take a step in that direction from the comfort of your home.

Given the rise of various delivery services in recent years, it's no surprise that an ever-increasing number of cheese shops have started offering subscription boxes to enchant customers hungry for variety. With options ranging from a couple of pieces every month to an assortment complete with crackers and wine pairing suggestions, there are plenty of ways to get your cheesy fix. Some cheese clubs highlight specific features -- such as offering regional specialties each month -- while others help feed your pre-existing plans, like date night or movie viewing. Additionally, keep in mind that many companies ask for a year-round commitment. Shorter timeframes are offered, but be sure to read the fine print to avoid any automatic renewals or unforeseen shipping charges.

Of course, no matter your preference, there's plenty of options for cheesy deliveries. With that in mind, here are the best cheese subscription boxes across the U.S. for any and every occasion.

Antonelli's Cheese

Antonelli's Cheese in Austin, Texas, was founded by a husband and wife passionate about making people happy with cheese. The duo and several staff members are Certified Cheese Professionals (a real accreditation by the American Cheese Society) and use their knowledge to curate the subscription box. Available for pick up at the store or nationwide shipping, you can choose between three, six, or 12 months of cheese for yourself or a cheese-loving friend.

Each delivery brings a variety of four to five options along with descriptions and the option to watch interactive videos with even more info about the products. If you opt for the Deluxe pack, you'll also receive a gourmet pairing to go with the cheese, such as crackers, jams, and preserves. The selection contains an assortment of cheeses made with cow, sheep, goat, and water buffalo milk, providing a balanced mix. You can't customize the boxes, but the variety makes it perfect for anyone looking to taste something new.

The boxes are each based on a theme, with three variations in the rotation. Meet the Maker focuses on specific cheese artisans (domestic and international), highlighting their style and unique characteristics. There's also a deep dive into geography with Taste of Place, which features a specific region, such as the Alps or coastal areas. Finally, One of a Kind focuses on certain attributes of cheese, such as those made with goat's milk.

Rogue Creamery

Rogue Creamery in Southern Oregon began as a small-scale co-op in the 1930s, bringing the area's artisanal dairy farmers together. Since then, the business has expanded internationally, but the same attention to detail and quality remains, resulting in a number of awards for the hand-crafted cheeses. The creamery was the first in Oregon to produce blue cheese and its cheddar was a significant source of fuel for troops during World War II.

The Cheese Club Subscription is a quarterly shipment (once every season) that offers a taste of the creamery along with an extra goodie or two. Rogue only makes blue and cheddar cheeses, but there are enough renditions with extra flavorings such as herbs or spices to prevent the box from becoming repetitive. The summer 2024 selection conveniently includes an insulated cooler bag (decorated with a cow) to keep your cheeses chilled for a sunny picnic. Past boxes have included pecan biscuits, marmalade, or a chocolate bar to accompany the salty options. The box also comes with tasting notes and delicious suggestions to pair with your cheeses.

The Gourmet Cheese Of The Month Club

The Gourmet Cheese of the Month Club knows that scarcity often adds value for connoisseurs -- whether collecting rare wines or tasting novel cheeses. The original cheese club was founded 30 years ago, eventually branching out to include The Rare Cheese Club, perfect for turophiles looking for something out of the ordinary. The monthly subscription box comes with three different artisanal cheeses that feature a rare or unique detail.

The small-batch products are hard to source due to their limited volume or geographic specificity, making it even more of a treat to open the shipments every month. The assorted cheeses are often made with uncommon kinds of milk, sourced from farms with only grass-fed animals. Along with the array of dairy, members receive tasting notes, stories about the cheesemakers, and in-depth information regarding each product. Food and wine pairing suggestions and optimal serving recommendations make it easy to set up a tasting session with fellow cheese lovers, transforming this monthly box into an occasion.

Cheesemonger Box

With products sourced from American creameries and farmers along with European imports, the selection always offers something new to taste. Test out the service by starting with a single box of three curated cheeses with optional add-ons, or try the Build Your Own Box option and choose three from a list of 20 or so cheeses. Once you're convinced about the quality (and you will be), level up with a subscription box.

This service allows users to choose between three, six, nine, or 12 months of deliveries, each offered as a classic or signature selection. The former includes three freshly-cut wedges of cheese that vary monthly, with options such as Basque sheep's milk cheese, Vermont cheddar, and blue. Meanwhile, the latter consists of the same trio, along with gourmet extras such as crackers, spreads, and charcuterie. The package doesn't leave you in the dark about the contents, either; additional details about the relevant cheesemongers and cheeses and pairing suggestions are provided with each shipment.

Cheese Grotto

Cheese Grotto offers monthly or quarterly subscription packages for cheese lovers. With a strong belief in tradition and small-scale production, the company aims to promote all the delightful nuances of American artisan cheese with surprises in every shipment. You can even store your tasty assortment in a cheese grotto, which are snazzy humidified boxes that prove you're playing in the big leagues of cheese fans.

The monthly delivery features a selection of three cheeses, highlighting a particular style that typically complements the seasons. For example, May 2024 emphasizes springtime with a trio of goat cheeses with flower petals, fresh herbs, and citrusy notes. For an extra fee, you can receive crackers and pairings, such as orange blossom honey, and customize your delivery by selecting cheese and milk preferences -- so if you're not a fan of blue cheese, you never have to see it.

Meanwhile, the quarterly Meet the Makers subscription places an American cheesemaker front and center. Subscribers receive two to four generous pieces of cheese made by the producer and have the chance to meet them via Zoom. The educational session includes plenty of information about the cheesemaking region, process, and specific products. If you're looking to nerd out over cheese, you won't be disappointed.
