Whole is Better

Better techniques and better ingredients make a better experience. This philosophy is part of all we do, from the farm to the table to the community. Our friends feel the same way, whether it’s a farmer, store owner, chef, or you. We all know that Whole is Better.

What’s Your Whole Story?

Since our farmers’ market days, hearing why, when, and how people enjoy our cheese and yogurt has been the best part of our work. Let us hear about you.

I love a cup after a run. It lifts up my energy and sets me up for the next day.

I’m so glad you are making sheep yogurt! It is a lifesaver for those of us with cow dairy allergies.

— Katherine

Even if I could eat dairy I would continue with the sheep yogurt. Great taste.

I don’t know if I’ve shared this with you guys yet, but berry tarts are my FAVORITE dessert! These are so easy to make and taste super fresh. I used Bellwetherfarms whole milk basket ricotta (thanks for sending!) which is soo rich and creamy. Full disclosure - I almost just ate it straight out of the container 🙃 Speaking of the container- it’s actually sold in its original draining basket- which really makes you feel like you’re eating #farmtotable ! I linked their page in my bio so you can try this out for your next berry tarts too! ❤️ #bellwetherfarms #handdippedricotta
Are you a “who cares about ricotta” person? I was like you once. No really, I was. Ricotta was for cooking and baking and that was about it - why eat ricotta as an actual cheese when there was a world of funk and stank to indulge in? Then, my life changed. Then, I had bellwetherfarms sheep’s milk ricotta. That blank canvas of nothingness that I used to associate with ricotta was GONE - this ricotta was RICH, she was COMPLEX, she had LAYERS. This ricotta is sweet and fluffy with just a hint of animal-y-ness that takes you on a flavor journey. And on a piece of toasted baguette with some homemade lemon curd? Shut the FRONT DOOR.

She’s not always available - this seasonal meringue-like cloud of a cheese is only around in the spring and early summer - but sweetlulabelle has some right NOW. Don’t sleep on your new favorite cheese. She is unassuming, but hot damn is she good.

A delicious seasonal #keto recipe from our friend @anyafernald CEO of @belcampomeatco >> Using a Zucchini Blossom to make a ravioli, filling with our Whole Milk Basket Ricotta!
.
.
.
"To make these, I whisk 1½ cup fresh sheep or cow ricotta (I use #Bellwetherfarms) with 2 egg yolks and season the mixture with salt and chopped herbs.

Gently open the zucchini flowers and put about a tablespoon of the filling into each flower. Pinch the flowers gently closed and sear in ghee or your other favorite high heat fat until they are toasty brown all around.

Add 2 cups of tomato puree, ½ cup water, a few tablespoons of olive oil, and braise very very gently on a low simmer for about 30 minutes to fully cook the filling. If you are not using tomatoes, add a couple cups of bone broth in lieu of the puree."
