Cheese Etc. & Gourmet Gifts was originally established in 1988 in Collingwood, NJ. We purchased the business in 2004 and maintained the Collingwood location for 10 years. In 2014 we relocated to the SoHa Arts Building in Haddon Township, NJ. SoHa is a unique workspace for artisans, makers & other small businesses. This move from a traditional retail environment has provided us an awesome opportunity to network with other small businesses just like ours and allow us to better focus on what we do best….creating gourmet gift baskets that taste as good as they look! And, we are also continuing to make all those yummy, and some now quite famous, homemade cheese spreads! Scroll down to read more about our gifts and spreads. We are grateful to all of our customers who have helped us continue to grow and be successful. We love what we are doing! Thank you for all your support! Ken & Gina Horlacher

About our homemade cheese spreads….Those of you who have been with us, know about our homemade cheese spreads. We started making them when we had the retail store and they very quickly became a popular addition to our signature gourmet gifts. We now have many gifts focusing around a collection of our spreads. Several years ago we hit the local farmers’ market scene with our spreads and they are now become a very significant part of our business, which continues to grow even more as we are always developing new flavors. 
We proudly source our ingredients locally whenever we can! We support "Jersey Fresh" local produce and honey through many New Jersey Farms. We also use wine and beer from local wineries & breweries.
