Steven, the shepherd, and Jodi, the cheesemaker, live and work on their 40-acre farm. Their four adult sons play various full- and part-time roles. They play every role from cheese ambassadors, farmers market vendors, occasional cheese-making assistants to milking, shepherds and all around farm support. Established in 1994 as a sheep dairy, Shepherd’s Way began making one cheese, Friesago in 1998 and now make more than eight varieties.
