Where to buy sheep milk / lait de brebis ?
« on: March 11, 2012, 04:46:13 PM »
Does anybody knows where to find sheep milk in Quebec ? Milk that I will be able to make cheese with ! ;)

Est-ce que quelqu'un sait où je pourrais trouver du lait de brebis au Québec ? Du lait avec lequel je vais pouvoir faire du fromage ! ;)

Merci !

Andrée

Did you find some, in the end? :)
I know I just found two places to buy goat milk (one of them also sells cow milk good enough to make cheese), but I didn't find any mention of sheep milk anywhere.
The goat milk companies are Cassis et Mélisse (http://www.fromagechevre.ca/) and Beurrerie du Patrimoine (http://www.fermegroleau.com/).

(If one feels like asking a French translation, I'll be happy to provide. :D)

Hi!

No, I still haven't found "good" sheep milk!

It's really sad that I don't like the taste of goat milk  :-\ ;)

One day, I will find !

Bonjour Andrée,

Ask at your local Farmer's market. Some vendors may know if there are any in your region. Just south of Ottawa, there's an Amish ewe farm that sell their milk to a local artisanal cheese maker, don't know if they are licensed to sell to the public though.

Here's a link to the cheese makers. I know Ottawa is far from Québec city, but maybe they have other ewe farm contacts closer to you. Their cheese is awesome btw  :D

Bonne chance avec tes recherches!

Bonjour Spoons,

Merci ! In fact, now I live in Montreal since April and I might move between Montreal and Ottawa during the year if I'm able to start my farm (pastured ducks  ;) )
So I will be really near them !

Now I just want to try their cheese, thank you really much.  :D
