Artisan Made-Northeast was launched in
2003 as an online business/retailer and wholesale distributor of handcrafted, all natural artisan made foods. We added Artisan Food Store,
our retail store, in 2008.
The idea for our business took root during our travels. We've been fortunate to have lived
and worked in Europe and in some exciting
and diverse areas in the US where we met farmers and chefs celebrating the quality and flavors of locally produced foods - foods connected to a specific place and maker.
This simple experience of great tasting locally made food paved the way for Artisan Made-Northeast.

We have great respect for the food artisan's focus on craft and commitment to quality. Through their efforts we experience a symphony of seasonal flavors that express the "terroir" of a specific place.
AMNE also gives us a creative and fun way of combining our professional skill sets: Sally
Camm has international experience in the food and beverage industry and is a Certified Sommelier through the Guild of Master Sommeliers. Thomas Camm has a professional background in marketing, business development and sales.
Over the past eight years we have immersed ourselves in the small farm revolution that is sweeping the US - becoming advocates for traditionally made, domestic, farmstead cheeses, handcrafted boutique wines and beers and small batch produced artisan foods.
Our vision is to create a network of support for the small farm and artisanal food producer in the Northeast US. We look to build awareness of the flavorful, all natural foods being produced in our region and facilitate a collaborative effort between maker, distributor, retailer and consumer that creates a strong economic model and ensures a solid future for the small farm and artisan food producer.
We hope our enthusiasm for great flavor and locally produced food rubs off and that we become your "Go-To Resource" for artisan made foods.
