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 more than a dozen specialty gourmet cheeses such as Buttermilk, Garden Blend, Jalapeno, Adobo, and Roasted Garlic Pepper.
Sweetwater Valley Farm offers walking tours to educate their visitors about the sequence of events that form the food production chain that they describe as “from cows to cheese”. Tours are offered year round, by appointment, as well as regular walking tours during the spring and summer months Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.. You can also visit The Udder Story exhibit. This houses a little bit of the past, answers the question of what dairy farming is today, and shares the technology of the future. Sweetwater Valley Farm is located at 17988 West Lee Hwy. in Philadelphia, TN and all of their cheeses are Made in Tennessee.
