Green Hill

Green Hill, from Sweet Grass Dairy in Thomasville, Georgia, is a true American original. This double-cream, soft-ripened buttery beauty is hand-crafted from grass-fed cows’ milk. Its grassy flavor is delicate and fresh, due in part to the fact that it’s only aged a few weeks. Because of the small size (a 7-oz. disc) that’s plenty of time to mature the cheese to gooey perfection.

The question we always get with cheeses like Green Hill is, “Should I eat the rind?” The answer is absolutely YES! Soft-ripened rinds add flavor and texture to your cheese. And in the case of Green Hill, the rind is so delicate, there’s no risk of flavor overload.

Pair Green Hill with a crusty baguette (it’s the best partner for the unctuous texture). Add sparkling wine like Cava or Champagne to take it to a whole new heavenly level.

And remember… ALWAYS EAT AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. This is true of all cheeses, but is especially critical with creamy cheeses like Green Hill.
