I watched last nights programme and was enthralled by the visit to the farm where they were making cheese from sheeps milk.
For those who didn't see the programme, the far was milking betwen 550 and 600 Friesland sheep. The milk stayed on farm and was then turned into a hard cheese. They showed us quite a large proportion of the process which resulted in several thousand cheeses being stored for three months plus.
The product looked really tasty and i'd consider the farmer and his family to be real food heroes.
sadly RSPB mouthpiece and burbling bbc plod kate humble put me off, like adam the farmer though wish he'd done the whole show. _________________ i think you are all possibly the most WONDERFUL people in the world, now don't let this influence any of you in the vote, but wow you look stunning.

I've had Berkeswell Blue cheese - nice, but my favourite British sheeps' milk cheese is Lord of the Hundreds. Will hopefully be getting some next weekend if we make it down to the first Sarah Raven open day (& food fair) of the year. _________________ Comfy shoes get you further in this world than stilletoes ever could.

there's a very young couple with young family live closeby who keep friesland sheep and sell the milk to a lady in norfolk.It is the wife's enterprise i forget how many sheep but the have so many acres and barns and live in a static caravan on site,they have to prove it to be a viable working business for 3 consecutive years after which they hope to build a dwelling on their land. I would consider all of that to be pretty focussed and heroic with a young family
