Relax, It's Just Food

Farmstead Cheeses and Wines was founded in 2003 in order to provide the finest in boutique and bargain wines, hand cut artisan cheeses, oils, vinegars and accessories from around the world. Farmstead's owners and operators, husband and wife team Carol Huntington and Jeff Diamond, bring a passion and knowledge of food and wine that is deep, pervasive, engaging, and fun. We dislike food and wine snobs as much as you do, but that doesn't stop us from finding under the radar and hard-to-find wines and perfectly presented artisan cheeses.

We were named Best Cheese Store 2005 and Best Wine Store 2007 by the editors of the East Bay Express, Best Wine Shop 2007 through 2011 by the readers of Alameda Magazine, Best Wine Store in the East Bay 2008 through 2010 by the readers of Oakland Magazine, and one of the Best Cheese Shops in the Country by Gourmet.com
