You’re Guaranteed To Love A Trip To This Epic Cheese Farm In Tennessee
Sweetwater Valley Farm is one of the gems of Tennessee. An east state establishment, this working dairy touts their state farmer pride and is generous about touring their facilities. Tucked away in the beauty of our great state, this is one epic cheese farm trip you simply can’t miss. Curious?
Located in east Tennessee, the farm operates in what is known as Sweetwater Valley. A prime area for agriculture, it is also the perfect location for a dairy farm.
The pride and joy of Sweetwater Valley Farms? Although their cheese is made in a sterile, state of the art facility, they also stick true to their roots. All cheese is made in a traditional farmstead manner, preserving Tennessee history while getting you the delicious cheese you love.
As a working dairy farm, you're able to take tours and visit during posted hours. It's a neat experience to see where your favorite creamy, award-winning cheddars come from!
Ah yes- here are the stars of the hour. Nothing would hold up without these great folks. Sweetwater Farm also offers a display called, "The UdderStory," one that goes into the nitty-gritty when it comes to milking cows. "People are fascinated with milking a cow‚“ says John Harrison of Sweetwater Valley. That fascination can turn into education, and The UdderStory explores the history of this very necessary farming avenue.
Here's another one, just for good measure. Thanks, guys! For feeding us and our friends and our babies.
Here, you can see as white cheddar cheese curds are being finished.
Of course, you can also buy them in the farm store on the property. Excursions occur if weather permits, but you can always stock up on something yummy to take home.
They even offer a Taste of Tennessee basket, which is the perfect thing to bring home or give as a gift to those you love. All items are made in Tennessee, each one representing a facet of the Volunteer State.
Bring the kids for a tour of a working dairy! It's a neat opportunity to learn about where your milk and cheese comes from, and also to see cows behind the whole operation. Tours are offered throughout the week, on Friday and Saturdays you can walk-in at 11am, or you can contact the farm for a scheduled tour.
The exact address you’ll want to punch in to your GPS is 17988 West Lee Highway, Philadelphia, Tennessee.
Check out their website for more details. Have fun, folks!
You can also take a
day trip BY TRAIN to these six places – after the cheese tour, of course.
