We have all heard the saying "you are what you eat", the same applies to sheep. By providing them with lush green barley grass everyday, they produce a thicker and creamier milk with a slight barley taste. Thus resulting in better tasting cheeses and in our case a sheep's milk cheese without that gamey taste. This is a great starter cheese for those who are not familiar in eating sheep's milk and goat's milk cheeses. For all you cheese mongers do not fear, our cheese is packed with flavor and aroma. You will notice nutty notes in our Golden Ewe or a buttery melt in your mouth sensation like in our Little Lamb. Give your taste buds a treat and try some Golden Valley Farm Cheese!
California is known for it's dairy cows, orange groves, and beautiful vineyards, but not so much for milking sheep. We decided to take on the task of not only becoming the Country's largest sheep dairy but also in producing some of the best sheep's milk cheeses to come out of the Sunshine state. Through modern innovation and environmentally conscious farming methods we strive to provide quality artisanal products with a west coast twist.
