Asher Blue is an award-winning, delicious blue cheese made in the heart of Georgia from a small family-run dairy farm. The name of the cheese comes after the owner's son's name. This cheese is made using unpasteurized grass-fed cow's milk, cultures, traditional rennet, sea salt, and the well-known Penicillium Roqueforti typically used in the production of blue cheeses. Asher Blue is aged for a minimum of 60 days. The paste is firm but becomes creamier and crumblier as it ages. The flavor is unique with notes of mushroom and forest, with a slight mineral tang, and mild salty finish. Asher interior has veins of shades of blue, and once cut the blue coloration will continue to develop due to the exposure of the naturally occuring fungus to oxygen. Enjoy this blue cheese with a well-rounded red wine.

Based in the small town of Thomasville in heart of Georgia, Sweet Grass Dairy is a small artisanal farm that makes cheeses using the best milk of their grass-fed cows. The name of the company comes after their beautiful grass pasture where their cows eat sweet grass every day of the year. Their cows are also moved to partitioned pasture areas, to allow vegetation in previously grazed pastures to regenerate.
