Valley View Farm nestles in a beautiful north Bedfordshire Valley overlooking the River Great Ouse. Their flock of French and Dutch breeds of sheep spend the winter months sheltering from the harsh weather in purpose built sheds where lambing occurs in February and March. With the arrival of spring and the help of ‘Toad’ the farm sheepdog the flock are turned out to graze on the sweet new grass and milking continues through into the autumn.
The delicious milk is prized for its numerous health benefits, is also turned into delicious yogurt and cheese
Dairy cows lactate for around 300 days a year whereas dairy ewes only lactate for around 180 so sheep milk, cheese and yoghurt are essentially seasonal products.
Sheep milk is naturally low in lactose and can be enjoyed without modification, and that’s not all. Sheep milk has a crisp clear taste, is easily digested and can even help with eczema and other allergies.
The milk is also naturally homogenized which means that can be stored frozen.
