Spring is in the air and fresh sheep milk cheese is available

Posted 3/6/2009 1:43pm by Leslie Cooperband or Wes Jarrell.

Hello cheese fans:

We received our first batch of sheep milk from our Amish sheep dairy this week, and we thought "what better way to say 'It's Spring', than some fresh cheese." So, we made a sheep "chevre"--a fresh sheep milk cheese very similar in texture to our goat chevre, but a bit more tangy. We will have it for sale this weekend at the Green City Market in Chicago and at a couple of stores in Urbana-Champaign: Common Ground Food Cooperative in Lincoln Square Village and World Harvest on University Avenue.  It comes in the same containers as our regular chevre and we are offering plain or with Herbes de Provence.

We also have Moonglo, our raw milk, washed rind tomme-style goat cheese, aged about 4 months. It's as pungent and delicious as ever.

Other news: We have begun the kid watch and are expecting our first does to deliver this weekend.  Even though this is our fifth year of kidding, we still have tremendous excitement and anticipation. 

Stay tuned for notices about on farm cheese sales and the Dinners on the Farm.

All the best.
