Brooklyn Slate Company’s cheese boards are exquisite in both form and function. The material is sourced from the Slate Valley—a geological formation that runs between Vermont and New York. Each slate features a unique edge and texture, feeling both refined and raw. The small board is a modern canvas for your favorite cheese or charcuterie selections.
- Upstate New York is well known for producing slate products.
- Once the slate is broken into smaller pieces, Brooklyn Slate Company then creates the cheese boards by hand using a chisel and hammer.
- The slate can also be written on using chalk, which is a great way to identify cheese for guests.
- Brooklyn Slate, founded in 2009, creates cheese boards and other home goods from locally-sourced slate.
- Slate, one of the most durable and readily available natural stones, is ideal for sturdy kitchenware.
- Brooklyn Slate sources their stone from a third-generation quarry in the Slate Valley on the NY/VT border.
- They cut the slate using a block saw or a chisel and hammer, depending on the size. This process creates subtle differences in each piece, ensuring that each Brooklyn Slate product is unique.
- Brooklyn Slate finishes, wraps, and packs their pieces at Progress Industries, a division of The Arc, Oneida-Lewis, which is a non-profit serving people with developmental disabilities and helping them to access meaningful employment.
