Our Cheeses

Our cheeses are made from blended milk from our happy herd of goats and sheep. The goat milk adds that special tang and vibrancy, and the sheep milk brings nuttiness and creaminess. Together they give the cheese complexity and the best of both flavour profiles.

MAKING THE CHEESE

THE PROCESs

 

Cheese making is all about the milk. All the work is done in the pastures.  We are pasture managers first and foremost. There is nothing more wondrous than the arrival of the fresh morning milk.  It is beautiful and perfect looking and it smells sweet. It takes all my strength not to drink it.  We don’t really “make” cheese as much as “guide” the milk into cheese.  Preserving the top quality of the milk is our goal.  

 

Since we are a solar powered farm, we do our best to manage power consumption.  Making cheese daily without pumping or storing it is one way we reduce our load. Plus it makes better cheese.
