This cheese aint for everybody....only the funky people. Funky Bleats is a funktacular blend of raw sheep and goat milk, about 70% sheep/30% goat, with a washed rind and just the right amount of funk. This cheese was completely unplanned and only came about when in Spring 2013 a local goat dairy friend called up at the last minute to offer some excess milk.

Our "Moolicious Blue" is an adaptation of our award-winning recipe for "Ewelicious Blue" sheep cheese, but using a different type of milk results is a very different cheese, albeit a delicious one, even when the same procedure is followed. That's just one of the countless fascinating aspects of cheesemaking that makes us eager to keep making more cheese.

How is this cheese you ask? Well, it's Ewelicious! This unique raw milk, natural-rinded blue is not a palate-blaster like some blue cheeses. Ewelicious is pleasing even to the non-lovers of blue cheese...just mild enough to be approachable, but complex enough to not to bore blue lovers. The paste is dense and crumbly with sweet minerally flavors, while the blue mold imparts an earthy savoriness.

We like a cheese with curves. Created in 2009 with absolutely no test batches, this is our flagship cheese, whose name was inspired by a Queen song and the cheese's accidental rotund shape. Each wheel of "Fat Bottom Girl" cheese is totally hand crafted with the raw milk from dairy sheep who live and graze freely on open pastures. Fat Bottom Girl is approachable and appealing to both cheese geeks & novices alike.

Created in 2011, this cheese is called "Shepherdista" which is a play on the words 'shepherd' and 'fashionista' as inspired by cheesemaker Seana's commitment to infuse some style and flair into her new-found agricultural pursuits....silver farm boots? Damn right. A pink cheese room apron? Naturally.
