Our Story

Let's face it, 2020 has thrown the world a curveball. In the past several months, our everyday lives have been turned upside down. Society has been disrupted in ways we never thought imaginable. Like all businesses, the restaurant and food service industry has been deeply affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Small-scale cheese producers and the artisanal makers have been particularly impacted by shuttered dining rooms and a shift in demand.

Board at Home came together through conversations within the artisanal community. Our industry colleagues and friends, all working tirelessly to adapt and to evolve their businesses, were asking the same questions. “What can we do? How can we meet these new challenges and help the restaurants?” We knew that we needed to band together to find creative solutions.

Led by Rumiano Cheese Company, Board at Home brings together the finest small-batch cheesemakers and artisans in Northern California to create the ultimate stay-at-home cheese board survival kit, delivered next-day to your front door.

Available in three sizes, Board at Home kits feature a variety of hand-crafted cheese, charcuterie and accompaniments sourced from some of the best pastures, orchards and farms on the planet.

We collaborated to support our community, to create something we know you will absolutely love, and to benefit the restaurant industry. Every Board at Home purchase supports the small-scale cheese producers, dairy farmers and artisanal makers who have been impacted by COVID-19. And 5% of Board at Home proceeds will be donated to The LEE Initiative to provide emergency assistance to independent restaurants and their workers. Together, we can help save the restaurant industry and everyone it supports. Thank you for helping us make a difference.

Life may be no 'picnic in the park' these days, but we are all in this together. Enjoy our cheese, drink some wine and continue to connect with your friends and loved ones, whether it’s a Zoom virtual happy hour, a Friday date night or a family picnic in the backyard. We look forward to delivering you a little joy.

Stay safe.

Cheers,

Ray Rumiano, co-owner Rumiano Cheese Company
