Sheep Milk Ricotta -- available in Boston area?

Hi Hounds,

I am in search of sheep's milk ricotta -- not ricotta salata, but the standard soft ricotta, as one would use to stuff pasta shells.

Trips to several Italian markets and Whole Foods (as well as a perusal of Formaggio's website) have turned up nothing. Someone at one of the markets told me I wouldn't be likely to find it because it doesn't keep well, and there aren't any local sheep farmers/cheesemakers making it. She told me to go to Italy. Or Vermont. Because there are sheep there.

I am not ready to give up so quickly.

Has anyone seen this item around?
