Please order ahead using our online ordering system. The farm store is currently only open by appointment. Due to the ongoing pandemic, visitors are not allowed inside farm buildings.

The Friendly Ewe seasonally sells yogurt, cheese, and ice cream made from sheep’s milk. Our products can also be found at Oxbow Beer Garden’s farm stand in Oxford, Fare Share Co-op in Norway, and the Bethel Farmers’ Market.

Renee milks a small flock of Friesian sheep in Hartford and processes the milk herself.

What does sheep’s milk taste like? You’ll find the flavor is very similar to that of cow’s milk, lacking the distinctive flavor sometimes associated with goat’s milk. Sheep’s milk is thicker than cow or goat milk, and has a higher fat content. This makes it ideal for cheese and ice cream making.
