Full Shipping Details
Big Woods Blue is a full-flavored blue cheese that blends the creaminess of sheep milk with an open texture and spicy, complex flavor. One of the best blue cheeses made in America, it has finished top in its class twice at the American Cheese Society. Artisan cheesemaking is a rare craft in the United States and sheep milk farmstead cheesemaking is even more unusual. One of the best farmstead sheep cheesemaking families lives and works in Southeast Minnesota, one hour south of Minneapolis. Shepherd's Way Farms' award winning, handcrafted cheeses are in limited supply but in high demand across the country.

Steven Read and Jodi Ohlsen Read established Shepherd's Way Farms in rural Carver County, Minnesota, with a small flock of sheep in 1994. The farm relocated to Nerstrand, Minnesota in 2001 as a farmstead cheese dairy. Now located just outside Northfield, Minnesota, the farm is across from the Big Woods State Park. Within three years, Shepherd's Way Farms had grown to be one of the largest dairy flocks in the country.

A devastating arson fire in January 2005, destroyed more than 500 sheep & lambs and all of the livestock housing. Currently, Shepherd's Way has a foundation flock of 300 ewes. Cheese production continues on limited basis. Shepherd's Way is a family-based, family-run farm - the farm family consists of Jodi and Steven and their four boys, Aidan, Elia, Isaiah, and Maitias.

How We Ship

FreshWave Packaging

Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality. 

For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.

Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
