Full Shipping Details
Shepherd’s Way Farm is a true family business. Steven Read is the shepherd, his wife Jodi is the cheese maker and their 4 sons help to run and maintain the farm. They have hundreds of sheep that live, sleep and feed happily everyday at their farm in Nerstrand, Minnesota, about an hour south of Minneapolis.

Jodi Ohlsen-Read has been making her award-winning artisan sheep's milk cheeses in small batches, by hand, at their farm since 1998. Friesago was her first cheese. Made from the milk from their flock of Friesian cross-bred sheep, Friesago is inspired by Manchego and Asiago. It is a natural rind semi-aged cheese with a dense texture and pleasantly mild flavor and a slightly nutty finish. A multiple award-winner, Friesago is versatile as a table cheese and as a cooking cheese. Pairs well with just about any white from Sauvignon Blanc to Chardonnay and loves a soft red such as Tempranillo. Friendly to all beers. Called a "must try" by Food and Wine magazine!
  • Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.
  • Suitable for Vegetarians.
