Tomette de brebis is a sophisticated cheese traditional to the Basque region of the Pyrenees. It is noted from its complex layered flavor and adorably small size. Our aged tommette is made from the richest milk that we get in the fall and aged at least 6 months to yield a semi soft cheese unlike any other made in Canada. It is rich and sharp, deep and earthy, and will leave you wanting more for hours after eating it.
Welcome to Secret Lands farm, a family-run sheep farm offering small-batch quality dairy and meat products produced with care and love.
Sheep have been raised for milk for thousands of years, and were milked before cows. Sheep milk has the most protein of any dairy animal, and more calcium than is present in cow’s milk. It is the richest source of α-linolenic acid, which is one of two essential fatty acids, and has smaller fat globules, which are easier for the human body to digest. Some of the most famous cheeses are made from sheep’s milk, including: Feta (Greece, Italy, France); Ricotta and Pecorino Romano (Italy); and Roquefort (France).
These ancient traditions and proven health benefits inspired us to make sheep farming our life’s work. We hope you love our products as much as we do.
