In just ten years, Sweet Grass Dairy has grown from an experimental farm with a herd of eleven animals into a leading artisanal cheese producer focused on high quality products and sustainable agriculture. Jersey cows on the farm are allowed free range; the warm Southern climate allows the animals to graze on grass year around. Owners Jeremy and Jessica Little and their staff are committed to hand-making and packaging every cheese, and that attention to detail is apparent in every bite.
This raw grass-based cow’s milk cheese is made in the style of a Pyrenees Tomme. The high butterfat milk provides this cheese with smooth, rich, and buttery characteristics. Tomme is subtle and complex with a thin, natural rind that gives way to a semi-firm golden interior. It’s finish is tangy and slightly salty.
