CHEESES

At Northland Sheep Dairy our sheep cheese is all made with raw milk produced by our own 100% grass-fed flock.   The ewes lamb in mid-April, and we begin making cheese in late May. We milk the sheep twice daily throughout most of the season, and make cheese until the animals are dried off in late October.  This means that all of the cheese we make is from milk produced by exclusively pasture-fed animals.  The sheep are fed hay during the winter months when they are not lactating.  We make cheese approximately every other day throughout the season, and our cheeses are aged in our cheese cave for four months to two years where they develop natural rinds.
