sheep's milk

Connie Crothers | Mar 14, 200610:23 AM

Sheep’s milk is now being sold at Union Square farmers’ market. The farmer is Karen Weinberg of 3-Corner Field Farm.
This has come about because I asked Karen if she would sell me sheep’s milk. I had just found out that I have an allergy to cow’s milk. The doctor told me I could tolerate goat’s milk and sheep milk more easily. While I love goat cheese, I don’t like the taste of goat’s milk in my coffee or on my oatmeal. It doesn’t really work in my favorite cake recipe.
At first, Karen was surprised by my query. She did set aside some milk for me when she made batches of cheese. (Her cheese is wonderful.) Coincidentally, others began asking her for milk. Last Saturday, she showed me her first bottled milk--it’s official.
Sheep’s milk is sweeter than goat’s milk and not at all gamey. I now like it better than cow’s milk. It is richer.
Karen also sells top-quality lamb. The stew I made with lamb neck was exceptional. The Morroccan-style lamb sausage is delicious.
