Sheep Milk Cheeses
Cheese will return in April. Thank you for your patience.
Our flock of East Friesian dairy sheep produces milk from April to September. From their creamy, rich milk we create several varieties of soft ripened/bloomy rind cheeses, blue cheeses, feta, cheese spreads, and ricotta.
Sheep or ewe's milk has been a key source of protein for humans since early civilization in the Fertile Crescent. Although sheep's milk is only recently growing in popularity in the United States, it has been used to produce some of the most famous cheeses in the world for centuries: Manchego in Spain, Pecorino Romano in Italy, and Roquefort in France. This milk and the dairy products that it produces are easily digested and have high mineral and vitamins contents.

Don't know what to do with a bloomy rind cheese? Looking for something new to do with ricotta? Here are some suggestions.
1 cup ricotta
1 cup flour (can use gluten free flour)
1tsp Italian seasonings
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup your choice of finely chopped veggie (onions, scallions, grated potato, grated carrot...)
Beat ingredients together until it forms a thick batter. Heat oil in a frying pan, bottom of the pan should be well coated with oil. Sccop large spoonfuls of batter and place in oil. Flip fritters when browned on bottom. Add more cooking oil as needed.
