We are excited to be carrying award winning Day Spring Dairy Cheeses. They are the first licensed sheep dairy and producer of sheep milk cheeses in Alabama. Sheep graze lush native pastures year round producing milk with unique flavor profiles. They never use pesticides or commercial fertilizer on their pastures. Likewise, their sheep are never given hormones. Fresca means "fresh" in Italian which seemed the perfect name for our fresh cheeses. Sheep fresca is often compared to goats cheese without the tanginess.
They start by creating their own southern fig preserves by slowly cooking locally grown Alabama brown turkey figs with raw turbinado sugar. Next, they fold the preserves into their fresh spreadable sheep cheese along with a pinch of fresh lemon zest. The result is a sweetly tart, bright and creamy spread perfect for breakfast breads and desserts.
Ingredients: Pasteurized sheep milk, fresh figs, rawturbinado sugar, sea salt, lemon zest, enzymes, culture
