Full Shipping Details
Shepherd's Hope is a mild, fresh cheese based on a traditional queso fresco recipe. Made from pasteurized sheep's milk, it has a soft yet slightly firm texture with light, milky flavours accompanied by a gentle citrus note at the finish. It has a shelf life of only eight to ten weeks after production. Shepherd’s Way Farm is a true family business and farmstead operation. Sheepherder Steven Read and his wife Jodi share the role as both head cheesemakers and farmers. The Read's not only raise hundreds of sheep that live, sleep and roam freely, but they also handcraft award-winning cheeses at Shepherd's Way Farm in Nerstrand, Minnesota, about an hour south of Minneapolis.


Jodi Ohlsen Read has been crafting award-winning artisan sheep's milk cheeses in small batches by hand at the farm since 1998. Shepherd's Hope is a fresh, farmstead cheese and has a shelf-life approximately eight to ten weeks after production. There is a strong chance this 2012 ACS award winner and chef favorite may not survive very long past the first taste. Shepherd’s Hope pairs well with a crisp Chardonnay and adds unique flavor to a fresh tomato panzanella salad.

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.
