Green Hill is Sweet Grass Dairy’s flagship double-cream, soft-ripened cow’s milk cheese uniquely developed in the grassy American South in the style of Camembert. It has an exuberant buttery flavor, a thin white bloomy rind and a silky paste. The interior is a delightful yellow colour derived from Sweet Grass’s signature grass-fed milk. The cows graze outdoors year-round, so some say you can actually taste the season of each cheese! Each wheel is hand ladled, aged two weeks and then wrapped individually before shipping out.PDF Info Sheet
Sweet Grass Dairy is nestled in the lush green pasturelands of Southern Georgia. Moderate winters and warm, humid summers ensure the Sweet Grass herd can graze on bountiful fresh grass year-round, producing cheeses that are a true expression of the vibrant terroir of the American South.
Founded by Al and Desiree Wehner in 2000, Sweet Grass Dairy is the creamery still family-run by the Wehners’ daughter, Jessica and their son-in-law, expert cheesemaker Jeremy Little. The Wehners began farming sustainably using New Zealand rotational grazing methods in 1993 and wanted to show people the difference in the high-quality milk from their grass-fed cows. The Sweet Grass Dairy mission: to uphold the highest level of humane animal husbandry while constantly pursuing perfection though the science of cheese and the terrior of Georgia.
Green Hill is the name of the Wehner Family’s original dairy.
