Sweet Grass Dairy broke ground on a new 12,000-square-foot facility on August 15, 2019. The new state-of-the-art space has customized environmental controls to maintain the correct temperature, humidity, and air flow in the cheese aging rooms.

Jessica Little, Co-Owner, Sweet Grass Dairy“We are so excited about the ability to increase our production capacity of our handcrafted cheeses,” stated Jessica Little, Co-Owner. “For the last three years, we have been looking forward to telling the story of Southern cheeses and the special grass-based milk that is able to be produced in Georgia.”

Since 2000, Sweet Grass Dairy has been making handcrafted cheeses. With a nationwide distribution footprint, the company has found success with both retailers and foodservice members, according to a press release. With six core cheeses in its line-up, Sweet Grass Dairy noted that this new facility will provide an opportunity to improve its quality and consistency.

Jeremy Little, Cheesemaker and Co-Owner, Sweet Grass Dairy"Continuous improvement is something we focus on every day as a team. This new facility provides an incredible opportunity for us to improve ALL of our products, and most importantly, work on developing new ones,” said Jeremy Little, Cheesemaker and Co-Owner.

The Little family is committed to sustainable farming, utilizing a New Zealand rotational grazing method that allows their cows to be barn-free 365 days a year. This unique farming style results in flavorful and premium milk for artisanal cheese. Over the years, the Sweet Grass Dairy team has received awards from the State of Georgia, The American Cheese Society, Good Food Awards, sofi™ Awards, and World Cheese Awards.
