Ah autumn – that time of year when you try to soak up the last rays of summer sun, then move inside to enjoy your cheese and wine as the nights get cooler.

According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2015 is The Year of the Sheep and we think it’s a fantastic opportunity to explore the delights of sheep’s milk cheeses. You may not know it, but you’ve probably already tried sheep milk cheese as some all-time classic cheeses are made using 100% sheep’s milk including Manchego, Pecorino, Roquefort and traditional Fetta. Sheep’s milk cheese has been around for thousands of years – in fact, it’s likely that sheep’s milk was used to make some of the first ever cheeses, as sheep were domesticated before goats and cows.
