Renowned Team of Testers Chooses Bellwether Farms Two Years in a Row

Petaluma, Calif. June 30, 2022 – Bellwether Farms , a family-owned creamery based in Sonoma County, is honored to announce that its A2 Organic Cow Yogurt has won a spot in the Good Housekeeping 2022 Healthy Snack Awards in the Unique Yogurts category. Bellwether Farms’ A2 Organic Whole Milk Yogurt is made with milk from healthy, grass-fed Jersey cows — the creamiest, most delicious cow milk available. These cows naturally produce milk containing only A2 protein, which is easier for many people to digest. The A2 organic, full-fat yogurt has a sweet-tart taste and lush, creamy texture. In using the highest quality milk from Jersey cows, the yogurt is richer and creamier, without straining, adding thickeners, or cream.

“Good Housekeeping is extremely reputable in the healthy-eating realm, so to be recognized as a winner two years in a row is a huge honor,” says Liam Callahan, owner of Bellwether Farms. “Our emphasis has always been on creating the highest quality products with a unique, delicious taste, and it shows in our A2 Organic Cow Yogurt. Not only does our yogurt boast amazing flavor, it also stands out because of its nutritional and dietary benefits from the A2 protein. Making it on this esteemed list of snacks will certainly encourage people to add this to their shopping cart on their next trip to the grocery store.”

Bellwether Farms A2 Organic Cow Yogurt is available in grocery stores nationwide and on Instacart. For more information, please visit BellwetherFarms.com.

Bellwether Farms Introduces New Line of Fresh Sheep Cheese Logs

Family-Owned Creamery Expands Lineup of Award-Winning Dairy Products 

Petaluma, Calif. June 9, 2021 – Today, Bellwether Farms expands its award-winning sheep cheese lineup with a new Fresh Sheep Cheese available in five varieties, Original — with a bright, clean flavor with notes of lemon — as well as Strawberry Preserves, Orange Marmalade, Moroccan Spice, and Sonoma Herbs. These creamy fresh cheeses provide an effortless way to elevate a snack, appetizer, main dish, or cheeseboard and are delicious crumbled atop salad, spread on crackers or toast, and as a velvety smooth filling in homemade ravioli or quiche.

Whole sheep milk, sourced from a small network of local sheep dairies, is the key to Bellwether Farms’ superior taste, texture, and nutritional value. These sheep have year-round access to open space, are raised without hormones, and are fed an all-natural diet including grass and alfalfa to ensure the highest-quality milk production. Because sheep milk’s protein is 100% A2 type, many people seek out sheep milk products since they tend to be gentler on digestion than cow’s milk cheese.

“Our sheep milk products have been a huge hit with our customers,” says Liam Callahan, owner of Bellwether Farms. “They’ve been asking us to add a fresh sheep cheese to the mix and we’re delighted to oblige with this launch. Thanks to the clean taste of sheep milk and our traditional, small-batch production methods, we are confident that our Fresh Sheep Cheese will be a new favorite among cheese lovers.”

Bellwether Farms’ Fresh Sheep Cheese Logs are available at grocery stores with a suggested retail price of $5.99 per 3 oz. package.
