Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative is a farm-to-table cooperative located in Northern Wisconsin. The farmer members raise and milk sheep on sustainable family farms. As the single largest source of high-quality sheep milk for dairy plants in the United States, we are the premier makers of sheep dairy products, such as artisanal and speciality sheep milk cheeses, yogurt, and butter.
Since the foray into cheese making, the Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative has added a number of regular varieties of cheese to the inventory. WSDC also creates several limited edition artisan varieties each year!
Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative produces a limited amount of sheep milk butter and sheep milk yogurt seasonally. Both products are in high demand when available.
What our customers are saying:
Seven years ago I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. The medication had taken a toll on my liver & kidney function. About a year ago I began drinking 12 ounces of sheep milk every day and enjoying sheep milk cheese and yogurt. At my last check up, my doctor told me my blood work showed my organ functions had improved and she noted that I had the blood work of a 20 year old. She asked what I was doing differently and the only thing different was adding sheep milk to my diet.- Steve Z. |
What a treat!!! it was delicious, aged to perfection, it smelled like ewe cheese should. My grandfather was a sheepherder from the Pyrenees and would have highly approved!!! The cheese from WSDC confirms what I have said so often that American products of European origin are often as good if not better than what we have coming from Europe. The best cheese I ever had, and I have had cheese in lots of places in the world. I will raise a toast, to Wisconsin.- Monique B. |
I never knew that butter could be made from sheep milk. I tried the Shepherdess butter and was immediately taken back to the days of my childhood eating fresh butter on saltine crackers. Your butter tastes like butter used to taste. I never noticed a difference before and now I am spoiled!- Victor S. |
Your yogurt is by far better than the finest Greek style yogurt I have had. I cannot believe how firm, creamy and smooth it is. The depth of flavor is amazing.- Scott M. |
I was skeptical because I have had goats milk cheese and found the goat flavor offensive. These cheeses were a pleasant surprise, no goaty flavor what so ever.- Joyce P. |
These are probably the finest sheep milk products on the market today. Once you start eating them, you just cannot stop.- Bob B. |
I recently gave a friend, who loves dairy products, but unfortunately has a lactose intolerance problem, some of your cheese and yogurt. Reluctantly, she ate them and experienced none of the usual symptoms she experiences with cow’s milk. Being skeptical she thought perhaps she no longer had a lactose intolerance problem and put some cow’s milk sour cream on her baked potato which proved to be a mistake as she became very sick. Thank you for providing these wonderful alternative dairy products.- Karen T. |
