Cherishing Cheese on National Cheese Day

June 4, 2011

By admin

Sure, June is National Dairy Month, but what would a dairy month be without cheese?

Mark your calendars for National Cheese Day on June 4, and in commemoration, try some quality cheeses made right here in Tennessee.

Sweetwater Valley Farm between Chattanooga and Knoxville makes more than a dozen varieties of cheese – from cheddar to pepper jack – and sells directly to consumers. Waynesboro-based Bonnie Blue Farm’s goat cheese won Best in Show at the American Dairy Goat Association competition last year. The blue-ribbon product is available at several retailers and restaurants throughout the state.

Specializing in flavored cheese appetizers, Savory Secret has catered for the CMA Awards, and its products have been featured on Top Chef.
