When my parents sent me pics of their trip to Valley Shepherd Creamery I liked them so much that they offered to take me too.  So I went to see the farm with 600 – 700 ewes who are bred with only 30 – 40 rams.  Interesting…they also have alpacas, goats, a horse and….



baby lambs!

In their Sheep Shop they sell many, many things made from sheep’s milk and wool
including of course their cheeses.
I also bought some glow-in-the-dark sparkly sheep along with yogurt, gelato and butter.

Next it was on to Alstede Farms for pick-your-own strawberries.

We picked about 12.7 pounds from the fields, so next post will be about my adventure canning my first batch of strawberry jam!
