Sweet Grass Dairy is a local south Georgia family farm and cheese company based in Thomasville, GA. We've been partners with Sweet Grass Dairy for years. You may have noticed their Cheese Plate on our Pavilion Menu. We share similar values in land management and animal husbandy with Sweet Grass Dairy. Their use of rotational grazing for their Jersey-based dairy herd upholds the same regenerative mindset we strive to promote on our farm. Their cheeses are all hand crafted and hand wrapped. Their long list of awards over the years demonstrates their continued dedication to quality, local products which also support rural revival. We share a similar path with Sweet Grass in that we both transferred from conventional to grass-based, pasture-raised, animal-welfare focused production methods in the early 2000s. We are so pleased to partner with another south Georgia family farm and we hope you'll stop by our 19th Century, restored General Store in Bluffton, GA to try some of their amazing products.
