Weekly Farm Update and Summer Menu Suggestions

Weekly Farm Update and Summer Menu Suggestions

Like all farmers in Ireland, it is all systems go as soon as the sun comes out. So we've been able to prepare the ground for a new fodder beat crop, which hopefully we can sew this week. Also, the grass has started to grow like mad, which is fantastic because we were getting a bit worried. We set up a paddock system at this time of year, so the girls get to graze a totally fresh piece of grass every few days. You can keep an eye on our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for video updates this week.

What does sheep’s milk taste like?

What does sheep’s milk taste like?

Another one of the very common questions we get asked. What does sheep’s milk taste like?  The answer is mild and creamy with a slightly natural sweet taste. We’ve observed that people think that sheep’s milk is going to taste a bit like goats milk or they are afraid that sheep’s milk might taste “sheepy” or taste like the smell of sheep. 100% of the time when we get people to taste our Velvet Cloud sheep’s milk yogurt or our sheep’s milk, they are always pleasantly surprised. The reason sheep’s milk tastes creamy and naturally sweet is because it is naturally homogenised, this means that the little fat globules in the sheep’s milk are so small that they float around naturally in the milk giving it that creamy taste
