Woodlands Dairy is a family owned business set in the heart of beautiful Dorset countryside, where we have been making award-winning yogurts for many years.
At Woodlands, we’re proud of our award winning sheep milk yogurt, which is produced onsite from our own flocks and fed on completely natural Dorset pasture. The welfare of our sheep is our top priority, they graze openly all year around except for in bad weather and for milking. You can keep up to date with the herd by following us on Facebook and Twitter.
While it might be more usual to find dairy products from cows, sheep have actually been raised for milk for thousands of years and were milked long before cows were. Sheep milk is highly nutritious and contains more vitamins and essentials like potassium and magnesium than cow’s milk, making it a tasty and healthy alternative to dairy cow products. As sheep milk is naturally lower in fat than cow’s milk, it is more easily digested and with a lower lactose content, can be included in a dairy or lactose free diet.
Currently our range includes Natural Sheep Milk Yogurt, Organic Sheep Milk Live Yogurt, as well as Melbury, a wonderful sheep milk cheese. Our Melbury cheese is a hard cheese and is matured for 7 months to make sure the texture and taste are perfect. Shortly after the cheese’s launch, it was entered into the Royal Bath and West Show’s British Cheese Awards where it came away with two awards. Don’t wait, try it today! All our products are available throughout Dorset and beyond, you can also get our award winning cheese delivered to your door, head to our website and visit our online cheese shop! You can also find our pots of natural yogurt at Waitrose, Sainsbury, M&S and over 800 independent health food shops, delicatessens and farm shops around the UK.
