We're at a different markert every weekend

Our nutritious milk is bottled and snap frozen on the farm to ensure that it's fresh when defrosted in your home. With the added bonus of being naturally homogeneous it won't separate like cow's milk and has almost twice the protein and calcium.  Our ewes are grass fed and produce milk enriched with minerals and vitamins including B12.  It's also dairy intolerant friendly and easy to digest.

Friezee, sheep milk ice cream

artisan batches of ice cream lovingly made on the farm

​After realising that we weren't going to be the next Ben and Jerry's I scaled down my ice cream making antics and now only make small artisan batches when needed. I can't help but dabble with the flavours so who knows what will be on the menu next. We use natural flavours and thickeners and avoid colourings when possible, we've also have reduced the sugar content to make it slightly healthier. It's called Friezee because the sheep are Frieslands and it's frozen!

Cheese

sheep milk cheese is mild and creamy

​Our cheese range is made by Sussex High Weald Dairy who produce award winning cheeses in a few different guises. See our shop for more info. We will be attempting to make our own cheese soon...watch this space...

Here's what we & others have been up to...

We've been nominated for the British Farming Awards

Farmers are at the heart of UK agriculture

With the Brexit process marching on, The British Farming Awards is a celebration of the every-day resilience and innovation demonstrated across the core sectors of our industry.

Organised by AgriBriefing, parent company to Farmers Guardian, Arable Farming and Dairy Farmer, there are 14 categories in total. All recognising farming’s core sectors – arable, beef, sheep, dairy and machinery – as well as acknowledging the vast array of farm diversifications emerging as farmers add value to their businesses.

The awards showcase diversity and a willingness to adapt regardless of whether you are a farmer, farm worker, new entrant or a member of an established family business.

There is often a perception when entering awards that you have to be the biggest and the best in the industry, but the British Farming Awards aims to showcase innovation and adaptability – no matter what the size and scale of the business.

Matt is regularly invited to sit with Allison on her show to discuss what's in the news.

Small Shepherds Club

Thank you to the Small Shepherds Club who invited Matt to speak at their AGM and dinner. Sarah, Jonathan and I were also spoilt with a dinner invite and were curious to see if it was true. As you can see from the photo, the majority of the members are actually quite tall! Of course the 'Small' bit of their title refers to the amount of sheep their members have, we found out that they have about 100 members and the average number of sheep owned is eight. Although the lady with 34 Zwartbles must of upped the numbers!

 

It was really lovely meet so many like minded farming types in one room who like sheep. Most people you meet say that sheep have a 'will to die', but that isn't entirely true, they will find the brambles to eat and stuck in them but as long as you have good husbandry routines it's unlikely that they will die. Which is exactly why the Small Shepherds Club was set up 40 years ago, animal welfare is at the top of their list and they help each other with any problems they have and have lots of training courses to help you set up.

Sheep Dairy tour of NZ

Thanks to the Ardingly Agricultural Society we were able to visit sheep milk drying plants in NZ

On Tour...We're putting the baaand back together
We toured in NZ, visiting Spring Sheep NZ, Maui Milk in the North Island and Blue River Dairy in the South Island. All of the dairies send their milk to a drying plant and generally sell the finished product into China or Asia. 

Blue River Dairy also make a cheese and sell fresh milk from their lovely cafe in Invercargill, if you ever go to Invercargill it's defo worth trying their sheep milk coffee and sampling the cheese.

​There are two drying plants that are small enough to handle sheep milk in NZ, the larger plants for cows milk are massive in comparison.

The farms attached to the dairies milk in excess of 2000 sheep and several of the the dairies have more than one farm attached. They send tankers off to the drying plants two of three times a week.

Thanks to all who visited our stand at the South of England Show
