The Hatcher Family Dairy is a 400-acre dairy farm in the rolling forest and pastureland of middle Tennessee. Since 1831, five consecutive generations have farmed the land God assigned to them in Arno, TN. For decades the family sold its milk to cooperatives to be combined with milk from other farms. However, in 2007, the Hatchers branded their own milk and started selling direct to the public.
Sweetwater Valley Farm is located between Philadelphia and Loudon in the heart of southeast Tennessee’s dairy-rich Sweetwater Valley. Sweetwater Valley Farm is one of the few farms in the country producing fine farmstead cheese. Meaning, they control the process from cow to consumer in order to create high quality cheddar cheese. They offer a vast selection of cheddars as well as specialty gourmet cheeses such as Garden Blend, Jalapeno, Adobo, and Roasted Garlic Pepper.
