“I met my wife in college and quickly became fascinated with her family’s dairy farm,” Jeremy Little, owner of Sweet Grass Dairy, said.
With a desire to change others’ perspectives on quality food, Little took an opportunity with a cheese manufacturer in South Georgia, and a few years later, he and his wife purchased the business. His wife Jessica said, “Jeremy learned the art of cheese making from my mother and then honed his skills working closely with a French cheesemaker. However it wasn’t always easy – Jeremy didn’t speak French and he didn’t speak English, so a lot of trial and error occurred.”
Little and his team utilize agricultural products that are sustainably farmed and humanely raised for their ingredients. Additionally he blends art and science to create unique, high quality, hand-crafted artisan cheeses and has won more than 20 domestic and international awards.
“My in-laws work hard to produce the highest possible quality of milk. My goal is to incorporate that same level of standards within the products we produce,” Little said.
