Sequatchie Cove Cheese

The Sequatchie Cove Creamery is nestled in a cove on the floor of the picturesque Sequatchie Valley, in Tennessee and produces farmstead cheese using time-honored European traditions with a distinctly Southern flair.

The cheeses are made using the raw milk from cows who spend every waking moment on grass, letting the expression of the land shine through in its flavors. Fresh forage, sunlight, Tennessee mountain air, a good bit of science, and a dash of artistry are the tools the people working on Sequatchie Farm rely on daily.

The creamery and milking herd are located on a beautiful 300 acre and owned and operated by Bill and Miriam Keener and their family. Every morning and evening the mostly Jersey and Jersey/Holstein crosses (along with splashes of Milking Devon and Tarentaise) are brought in from the pastures to be milked, rain or shine.

The creamery is 100 percent solar powered and strives to be as sustainable as possible. Our biggest waste product, whey, is fed to Sequatchie Cove's woodlot pigs. The cheeses of the creamery are all made everyday using the freshest raw cow's milk produced directly on the farm. Every step is painstakingly taken to ensure safety, quality, and an expression of the local "terroir", which to us is very much a Savoie of the South.

Our Featured Sequatchie Cove Cheese

When you remember the French cheese Morbier, you may recognize the Coppinger cheese, made by Sequatchie Cove Creamery. Nathan and Padgett Arnold are the owners of this small creamery that is 100 percent solar powered; they strive to be as sustainable as possible.

Coppinger Cheese is a velvety, semi-soft paste and is bisected by a layer of vegetable ash. It offers notes of fresh grass and smoked meats. The cheese is versatile enough to cook with or feature as part of a cheese plate.

Like Morbier, Coppinger is a washed rind cheese, stinky and aromatic, made from raw cow's milk. This Tennessee gourmet cheese is made in wheels of approx. 4 pounds; a little smaller than its original French counter part.

Pairs nicely with fruity lighter bodied reds, malty ales and stouts, pickled vegetables, bacon jam, and charcuterie. Try it melted on a burger or as the ultimate grilled cheese.

We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces and you can also purchase an entire wheel of approximately 3.5 pounds.

Please note that wheels of cheese may vary slightly in weight; you will be charged for the actual weight of the wheel that you will receive.
