Sheep Milk

Sheep Skyr

2018-08-28T13:47:59-04:00

The yogurt of the Vikings!

Brought to Iceland from Norway over 1000 years ago, skyr was traditionally made with sheep’s milk. Our sheep skyr is protein-rich and full of high-quality fats, made by hand from sheep’s milk in small batches.

Sheep’s milk from grass-fed ewes is one of the most nutritious milks available, and is naturally homogenized with small fat globules, making it easier to digest. Many people who have intolerance or sensitivity to cow’s milk find sheep’s milk to be much more easily digested. Compared to cow and goat milk, sheep’s milk has significantly more fats, calcium, protein, vitamins and minerals.

Our sheep are moved to fresh pasture every day, grazing on clovers, grasses and wildflowers, and eat lots of organic apples in the fall.

Our Skyr is packaged in glass, and has a shelf life of 4-6 weeks.
