Sheep cheese

Blue River Dairy's sheep's cheese

Sheep milked for their cheese

For something a little different especially if you like cheese, but have an allergy to cow’s milk, Blue River Sheep Dairy manufacture an increasing range of products with sheep milk.

They have a commitment to utilising nature’s goodness to provide you with healthy, award winning, quality products. Their sheep graze on the lush, green pastures of Southland and the company is based here. Blue River is completely vertically integrated, to ensure that the highest quality is met through quality control at each level of the supply chain.

The tradition of sheep milking goes back centuries and can be traced back to strong roots in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern countries. Sheep’s milk is also extremely healthy with up to twice as many minerals like calcium, phosphorus, iron and zinc and vitamins as cow’s milk. It is also much higher in total solids than either cow or goat's milk.

The range includes Feta, halloumi, pecorino, cheddar, feta and blue feta, in addition there is sheep milk powder and, as a New Zealand first, the award winning sheep milk ice cream.

Not all products have been tasted, but the feta went down a treat when coupled with melon in a salad.
