Cheese Center of the World: That’s what Cuba, NY in the beautiful Southern Tier was once referred to as back in the day. In honor of #NationalCheeseDay, am re-visiting some images I captured at the iconic Cuba Cheese Shoppe. It’s a celebration of NYS cheeses and beyond. They have 450 varieties of domestic, imported and local cheeses. Around the corner on Main Street is one of just three cheese museums in America, providing great history on the cheese making in this region. Back in the late 1800’s, farmers would transport their cheese products from here all over the northeast and beyond by way of railroad or canal. The NYS cheddar cheese remains a favorite for many due to the soil and water peculiar to the region thanks to the Great Lakes. It’s a distinct, sharp flavor unique to our corner of the world. Cuba Cheese Shoppe delivers to over 200 stores in WNY and Northern Pennsylvania.

Our awesome Cuba Cheese Shoppe!

Cuba has a long, rich history with cheese.

Known in the 1900’s as the “Cheese capital of the world” on every Wednesday during the first half of the century, the US Market price for cheese was set at the Kinney Hotel in Cuba. For over a century Cuba Cheese was only available to the commercial food industry and a few select mail order customers. But in 1976, Cuba Cheese opened its doors and established a retail cheese outlet for the general public.

The Cuba Cheese Shoppe at 53 Genesee St. opened during the summer of 1976. In 1991 the cheese plant decided to get out of retail and the Shoppe was sold to Jeff Bradley of Cuba. In 2007 the store was renovated, expanding as well as adding a mail order packing room in back. In addition to Cuba Cheese, they sell over 450 varieties of domestic, imported and local cheeses. They also have gourmet foods and gift baskets, cheese curd, salt rising bread, and other local products such as honey, chocolates, sauces, maple syrup, Amish goods, jellies, jams and more. The Cuba Cheese Shoppe also added a wholesale truck delivery service to deliver to over 200 stores throughout the Southern Tier.

The Bradleys employ about 15, with more during the busy holiday season. They pride themselves with good customer service and do their best to promote the wonderful NYS cheddar cheeses that originated in 1887 in Cuba. The store is a “must stop” for locals and visitors and often bus tours will make a stop at the Cuba Cheese Shoppe. They are open daily 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is also an online catalogue

Check out their page and their website at www.cubacheese.com.

Fun little plce to visit. Great cheese to purchase in the area
Does anyone know about Cheese making in Cuba in the 1870s? Specifically the Amsden Cheese Factory. Jonathan Smith mentioned in the gazetteer was my 3rd Great Grandfather. His son, Curtis Smith, married Nellie Amsden of Cuba.
Just wondering what the price for admission is?
