Raspberry Ridge Sheep Farm began in 1995 and the Creamery is their latest endeavor to improve stewardship of their livestock and beautiful land. It took about a year to start the creamery business which involved working with cheese makers to learn to make cheese and yogurt, with dairy farmers to learn about milking sheep, and with the state and local agencies to obtain the permits and license necessary to operate the business. After an exciting year, Raspberry Ridge Creamery started producing cheese in their commercial cheese kitchen in June 2018. Plans include expanding their dairy flock to increase sheep milk supply to make, age and sell more and better cheeses. Aging is a critical component to the flavor of a cheese and their cheese cave can hold approximately 256 cheeses each weighing eight pounds. Raspberry Ridge will be selling cheese and yogurt made with milk from their grass-fed sheep.
