Nestled on 65 acres back from the road, surrounded by a sea of green orchard grass grown for our sheep to eat, with view of the Delaware Water Gap and surrounding mountains and hills, the Creamery is part of Raspberry Ridge Sheep Farm.
We have raised sheep on the farm since 1995, but we only started milking our sheep in 2017. We make our cheeses and yogurt in the creamery and aging caves where the cheeses sit to develop their full flavor.
All of our dairy products are made from the milk of sheep on our farm. The sheep eat pasture in the summer months, and in the winter they eat non-GMO hay and a mixture of alfalfa, oats and barley. We believe a grass fed diet leads to healthier animals and products. Although we’re not organically certified, we don’t use pesticides and rely on natural practices to maintain our pastures and flock.
Sheep dogs live with us and help with the daily tasks of managing the sheep. We have border collies and German shepherd dogs. Carolyn runs a sheep dog training center here at the farm.
