If you are not “in the biz” of food please ask your favorite grocer to contact us. We also welcome orders for wheels of this cheese from anyone out there so click the link about wholesale above if that’s your style.
This is a lovely smooth Gouda Cheese that makes me think “slow and steady”. Both the cow and sheep versions are simple and elegant. The subtle flavors are sure to win over any cheese lover, and this is likely a wonderful pairing with a peppery cracker or hot pepper jam for those interested in adding flavor to the experience of the cheese. This would also go well with flavors like a hard cider.
Amy from Crooked Face Creamery
We partnered with Crooked Face Creamery on this product because we love Amy’s style and love that goes in to her work. She uses her instinct and fermentation knowledge to bring our organic, soy-free milk to life in a whole new way. We love this elegant product she has created.
PRODUCT INFO: The milk is sweet and delicious… from ewes grazed on certified organic pastures. These ladies eat organic oats while milking and are some of the happiest sheep in Maine. Misty Brook is the first farm to offer pure raw sheep’s milk.
GENERAL INFO ON SHEEP MILK: Sheep milk tastes a lot like cow milk. It is not gamey tasting like goat milk and is light, creamy and sweet. “Sweet” is the word most heard when tasting. When we’ve done taste testing in stores the response is “wow we love this!”.
The fat globules in sheep and goat milk are smaller than in cow milk, which makes it a healthy alternative to cow milk and wonderful for children. In doing some research they even say Sheep milk is the closest to human milk. It seems we might say the same about goat milk but often find that flavor is not as nice as sheep milk.
We appreciate Shannon Hayes and offer her video to help with cooking grass-fed beef kabobs…
About Misty Brook
Our fields are Certified Organic by MOFGA. We use our own compost from animals and plants to enrich the soil and promote healthy pastures. Our compost is enlivened by Biodynamic preparations to encourage healthy microbial activity and create a balanced organic fertilizer. Our crops and animals move across the farm in a rotation. This keeps both the crops and animals disease free and prevents soil depletion. The crops are the breath of the farm, and the animals are the heartbeat.
