This beautiful Yorkshire feta style cheese has a bit of a lovely story behind it. Due to the coronavirus crisis Yorkshire's sheep milk farmers were struggling to survive. Early in the crisis one told the cheese makers at Shepard's Purse that they only had two out of 22 customers left and we were one of them. They had tankers full of amazing milk with nowhere for it to go. In order to be able to take more milk, sisters Katie and Caroline Bell at Shepard's Purse rapidly developed this product, a new version of their famous Yorkshire Fettle, a delicious 100% northern sheep's milk salad-style cheese. It's incredible to cook with or to enjoy by itself, we have to admit to being rather partial to making TikTok Tomato Pasta with it!
Shepherds Purse Artisan Cheeses began in the late 1980’s after Judy Bell discovered her passion and talent for cheese making as she set out on a mission to create quality dairy alternatives for cow’s milk allergy sufferers. A proud, independent family business, making cheese in the traditional way on their farm in North Yorkshire. They have grown and expanded over the years, having started by making cheese only from sheep milk, now they have extended the range to include cow's milk and even water buffalo milk cheeses. The Shepherds Purse team is now a team of 35 passionate artisans being led by Judy’s two daughters Katie and Caroline.
