Welcome To Sweetwater Valley Farm!

We are a family dairy farm producing farmstead cheese.


Our Dairy Farm

Our Vision / Mission at SVF is being committed to consistently producing superior agricultural products through dedication to our employees, animal care, and natural resources. We strive to create a sustainable business model through innovation, efficiency, leadership development, and customer satisfaction.


Meet Our Cows

We spend countless hours each day making sure our cows at Sweetwater Valley Farms are comfortable and happy so they can produce high quality milk. They are our livelihood and we want to take care of them and make sure they have the best life all the way from the day they are born throughout the whole rest of their lives.


Our Cheese

We make a wide variety of cheddar based cheeses as well as gouda. We are a farmstead cheese producer which means we are controlling the entire process from cow to consumer starting with what we grow at our farm to feed the cows and then later down the road using their milk on our farm to produce our cheese.
