Star Thrower Farm's cheesemaking philosophy is simple: take excellent care of the land and sheep then allow the
pure and natural to happen! We are sticklers for healthy pastures and grass-based diets and it shows in Star Thrower
cheese. Our sheep's milk is clean and fresh and produces wonderful whole milk ricotta, whey ricotta, skyr,soft ripened
Camembert-style cheese, blue cheese and aged tommes. Our ricotta, skyr and soft ripened Camembert-style
cheeses are pasteurized and our aged tomme and sheep's milk blue are raw milk cheeses.
We also make an aged tomme Ubriaco, which means drunken in Italian. Tommes are soaked in grape must from the
production of a local port wine. This cheese is called "Three Sheeps to the Wind" and is produced in very limited
We are a true farmstead operation and each cheese is produced in small batches by our cheesemakers. We hand
rub our cheeses with course sea salt and care for our cheeses in an aging facility on our farm.
Our dairy is seasonal and our production is limited. We will begin milking our ewes in early June and making cheese
shortly thereafter. We hope you will try a Star Thrower cheese, available at many fine restaurants and natural food
coops in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
