View Full Version : Raw Sheep Milk Cheese
12-14-10, 06:33 PM
Has anyone tried raw sheep milk cheese? I have a cow dairy allergy and don't tolerate goat milk that well. Sometimes people can do sheep milk.
I was wondering if anyone with milk allergy/intolerance had tried raw sheep's milk cheese and how did you do and do you have a brand you like?
I just had raw sheep's milk cheese that someone bought me in a Christmas basket. It was good. A little more crumbly than regular stuff.
However, I'm not sensitive to dairy so I can't comment on that aspect of it. Sucks you can't tolerate cow or goat milk.

Gluten was easy to give up.
Cheese is hard to go without!

I am dairy intolerant and have tried raw sheeps milk and cheese. We have a friend who has a sheep dairy. I reacted to it just the same as I do cows milk products.

If I try it I am going to do it very slowly since I have heard other people say the same thing, Aaltrude. My sinuses slam shut, which is an easy way to tell LOL!

I believe the milk breeds are constructed slightly differently (and milked by machine), but believe me, when newborn lambs are weak and you must milk the mother into a pre-warmed mug and then force feed the lamb with a syringe, a ewe has a teat the size of your top thumb knuckle. Good luck with THAT.

I have seen the sheep "milked". Yes it is done by machine and it often requires "punching their udders to get the milk flowing in much the same way that lambs do when they are feeding from their mums. There is a particular breed of sheep that is favoured for milking. It is the East Friesian.

Right. You must do this to every mother since that is what the young do to get mom to "let down" her milk. Washing the udder of the family cow with a warm cloth has the same effect. You humans who have had a child know that a crying baby (or other triggers) will do it too. It can be a bit embarrassing if you are in public and suddenly two big wet spots appear on your bazoom....

It is a lot harder to get sheep to let down their milk than it is for cows.

I buy pasteurized sheep feta all the time, and I think it is yummy on salads.
In fact, try this:
mix, and enjoy.

Our local Farmer's Market has a stall selling sheep's milk cheese. I used to get some occasionally before I had to give up dairy products. It is yummy.

I was buying manchego cheese for a while until it got just too expensive. I really liked the taste. I was not raw though.
