Sweet Home Dairy Farm – Elberta, AL

29 Mar

The dirt road to Sweet Home Dairy Farm

Knew we were gettin’ close when we saw this sign

When you see this mailbox you have arrived!

Lots of great cheesy choices @ Sweet Home Farms 

A tempting selection of local cheeses – we chose Gouda

I am a sucker for old trucks & rustic locales

“How much do you want for the truck?”

This cute little house is for the birds — literally!

They’re what’s for dinner — and they know it!

Picked up some massive fresh strawberries on the way home

Sweet Home Farm is a working family dairy established in Baldwin County, Alabama in 1985. Their herd of Guernsey cows has access to fresh pasture grasses nearly year-round, supplemented with regionally grown grain. Using a variety of sustainable agriculture practices permits them to control quality every step of the way as the cows transform grass into milk, and they convert that milk into cheese. They use no herbicides, pesticides or growth hormones on the farm. Sweet Home handcrafts a wide variety of cheeses, all made from fresh cows’ milk, enzymes and salt, and aged for a minimum of 60 days. Farmstead cheese reflects the particular soil, climate and herbage of each season. They celebrate these seasonal variations in the cheese and recognize them as the hallmark of unique regionally-produced food.
