SHEEP MILK CHEESE

 Semi Hard and aged cheeses - $29.99/lb or as marked

Golden Manchego is a Spanish Semi Hard cheese. It is traditionally known for being made with sheep milk. We age this cheese for at least 2 years. It has a nutty mild flavor profile. 

 

Halloumi- $24.99/lb is a semi hard cheese that you can grill. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside! You can get plain or the traditional mint added type- even with Basil! Some people use it as an alternative for bread.

 

Ricotta Salata- $22.99/lb
Ricotta Salata is an Italian cheese made from the whey part of sheep milk, which is pressed, salted and aged. It is milky white in color with a firm texture, mild taste, lower in fat and has a salty taste. The cheese is often used in Italian dishes, on pastas, salads and ideal for slicing, crumbling and grating. keep refrigerated and wrapped- it will last a long time because of the aging process.

Mauldinian is Semi Hard cheese is an original recipe that we developed at our Mauldin farm, hence  the name! This sheep milk cheese is pressed in basket molds, then soaked in wine for 4 days, then aged. It has a mild but complex flavor and the basket look is elegant! The wheels differ in size. The wedges would be priced from $12-$16 for 1/2-pound size. The bigger more beautiful wheels are 

Pecorino Ewetopia made with our sheep milk is a traditional Italian cheese known for being made with Sheep milk. It is similar to Manchego with nutty flavor profile.

Oconee Jack and Spicy Oconee Jack is made with sheep milk- is similar to Monterey Jack. Spicy is like a Pepper Jack with black and crushed red peppers!

Boozey Ewe is a Semi-hard cheese made from our sheep milk and the rind has been washed in beer. This cheese is a little stinkier than some of my other cheeses. This batch, we used 2 Quest beers- one dark Porter ale, Isaqueena- the Mango Belgium ale and an Italian Amaretto.ranging from $26- $34 for the 1-pound size.

Feta – 8oz container in oil or brine $8
We age our Sheep Milk Feta in an 8% Brine for at least one year to allow the flavor to ripen. This Feta is packed full of flavor, but It can be salty as would be expected from a brine cheese. To remove some of the saltiness from a brine stored cheese, soak it in milk (any type) overnight, drain and store in olive oil. make sure you completely cover the cheese and that allows it to last a long time!  Feta is commonly used on salads, but it is great in burgers or anything that needs seasoning. try it in potatoes or veggie dishes.

We have some short-aged Feta (60 days) which is from the spring milk, it has a buttery rich flavor and not as salty as the longer aged Feta.

We’re trying some different herbs and spices in the brine and even trying a wine brine. Ask about the latest types- variety is the spice of life!!!

Ricotta - 8oz container $8
Our Sweet Ricotta is made from the fresh whey from making our Manchego or Pecorino cheeses. We add some fresh whole sheep milk around 10% additional. Sheep milk is so rich that it doesn't need anything (usually Apple Cider Vinegar like I use for the goat or the cow milk) to form the beautiful rich proteins that form the ricotta which makes it sweet! The ACV leaves a little tartness and sometimes a little reddish color whereas the sheep milk ricotta is white. In Italy, they warm it and put it on toast for breakfast. You might like it in lasagna, baked spaghetti, in pasta, calzones, pizzas- so many way to enjoy it!

 

SOFT CHEESE SPREADS

Fromage de Brebis - $16/lb (which in French means cheese of the sheep)
These Soft Cheeses work well for those with lactose intolerance, have a sweet and rich taste and twice the protein compared to goat or cow's milk. Sheep milk cheese freezes well for at least 6 months. In the fridge, around 5 weeks.

 

The following are sold in 8oz containers for $8.
