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

Sequatchie Cove Creamery's Cumberland Cheese is a raw cow's milk cheese with a natural rind and a smooth semi-firm texture. This flavorful Tomme-style has an earthy aroma of dried leaves and a fruity, tangy rich buttermilk flavor.

The milk comes from Jersey cows that graze on the greenery of the mountainous terrain. The raw cow’s milk is transformed into French Tomme de Savoie-style cheese.

Cumberland cheese is named for the towering plateau that envelops Sequatchie Cove Farm, which also happens to be the world's longest hardwood-forested plateau.

Pair this gourmet cheese with a dry white wine, green pears, pecans, and strawberry or cherry preserves. Perfect in salads or melted in almost any dish.

We hand-cut and wrap this gourmet cheese in wedge of 1 pound and 8 ounces. You can also purchase the entire wheel of approx. 4 pounds.
