Fresca means "fresh" in Italian, which seemed the perfect name for these fresh sheep milk cheeses. This is a creamy, soft, and mildly tangy spreadable fresh cheese, also known as Brebis. The flavor, freshness, and richness of their milk comes through to produce a milder and less pungent soft cheese when compared to goat cheese or chèvre. You can eat this cheese with salads, pizza, sandwiches, crackers, scrambled eggs, bagels, or anything else your heart desires!

Ana & Greg Kelly of Dayspring Dairy in Gallant, AL make their cheeses by hand on their sheep farm. Sheep milk is much richer than cow or goat's milk, making it ideal for cheesemaking. It also contains more protein, minerals, and healthy fats, and for many folks it's more easily digested, with few allergenic properties. Their hormone-free sheep are pasture-raised year-round on grass that's free from pesticides and fertilizers.
