    About:

    Best Baa is a small dairy in Fergus, ON. Eric and Elisabeth moved with their flock from Manitoba to Ontario in 1998 and it was then they learned of the growing demand for sheep's milk. After researching European production of sheep's milk cheese, they discovered their flock was the best breed to produce milk for cheese!

    Sheep's milk retains the same volume when turned into cheese, which removes the need for thickeners. It's a great alternative for those who are sensitive to cow's milk. Best Baa also places a top priority on animal welfare and understand that they are stewards of the land. They utilize the 'Five Freedoms' guidelines for their herd, which comprises of freedom from hunger and thirst; freedom from fear and disease; freedom from discomfort; freedome from pain and injury; and freedom from to express natural, normal behaviour.
