Owners Jessica and Jeremy Little, second generation farmers from Thomasville, Georgia, lead this award winning artisan cheese production using the rich milk from their Jersey cow dairy herd. These cows are raised using sustainable, biological farming practices that provide a welcoming and healthy environment for the herd. The milk from these cows is the foundation for the delicious handcrafted fresh, semi-ripened and naturally aged cheeses that are found at Sweet Grass Dairy’s Thomasville, GA retail store and at many local farmers markets.
Al and Desiree Wehner founded the dairy in 2000. They began on 140 acres of south Georgia pastureland with 11 dairy goats, with the goal of producing hand crafted old world style cheeses with a while commitment to earth friendly farming. Jessica and Jeremy continue that tradition today with customers as far away as Oregon and California. Try the popular Asher Blue – named after the Little’s middle child or Thomasville Tomme -a raw grass-based cow’s milk cheese made in the style of a French mountain Pyrenees Tomme.
