Sweet Grass Dairy of Thomasville, Georgia practices biologically sustainable, grass-based farming. Their Jersey cow and multi-breed goat herds are rotationally grazed and live their entire lives outside, roaming lush pastures and browsing the South Georgia woods. Their pastures are precisely managed, beginning with the gentle nurturing of the biological life in the soil. The high standard of operation at the farm provides the animals with healthy and clean lifestyles and provides an enjoyable work environment for the farm's employees. The bottom line is that Sweet Grass Dairy's animals are happy. Happy animals produce valuable, luscious milk, and rich milk makes the best cheese.
This cheese is named after Sweet Grass Dairy's home town. When it is made, the cheese is put into molds while the curd is still very soft. This results in a smooth and creamy taste. We are impressed by its golden yellow color and mellow and buttery flavor characteristics.
The Thomasville Tomme can be used in a variety of applications. It melts well and can be used in anything from fondue to omelets. As a snack or part of the dessert course, it simply melts in your mouth. Pair it with a shiraz or a light-bodied red Burgundy, served with ripe melons, thinly sliced prosciutto and sourdough bread.
