Sheep at Haverhill Dairy Picmonkey

TASTE News Service, December 1, 2015 - C After putting its craft sheep butter on grocery store shelves in late 2014, the sheep dairy and farmstead creamery won first place in the craft butter category in the 2015 American Cheese Society Awards.

Plus, the creamery was a finalist in the food category for the 2015 Martha Stewart American Made audience choice awards. American Made spotlights the maker, supports the local, and celebrates the handmade. The program is made up of people and communities that have turned their passion for quality craftsmanship and well-designed goods into a way of life.

Haverton Hill is the first and only creamery nationwide sending glass-bottled sheep milk to grocery store shelves. All of the milk and cream for its products comes from Haverton Hill's flock of 900 East Friesian dairy sheep, a breed known for its excellent milk production.

Its sheep milk is gently vat pasteurized at 150 degrees. Haverton Hill's naturally-cultured and slowly churned sweet, creamy sheep butter is made in small batches, using simple and traditional methods. The creamery also produces sheep ice cream, which is churned and hand-packed on the 378-acre farm and comes in six flavors (vanilla bean, mint chip, hazelnut crunch, dark chocolate nib, strawberry balsamic, and coffee).
