Still milking

So much for drying the ewes up before Christmas! With all these summer storms, plenty of green feed in the paddock and the support of green sprouts the milk volume has stayed up for the meantime. We have added lupins to the barley which is the icing on the cake according to the ewes. In fact I rather like the taste of bean shoots myself. So we have fresh sheep products for the busy holiday season in the shop. The Baa Black is popular - outstanding in a comparison with the legendary ashed Paradigm Log (goat milk), with its dense creaminess and unique smokey sheep flavor. Fresh sheep yogurt is also going to be available for a limited time.
