Courtesy of The Review : A fruit and cheese table will be open for snacking. Artisanal Sheep’s Milk Cheeses from SD&G featuring Pecorino Classico- olive oil ripened, semi-hard, traditional Italian cheese and served.

Artisanal Sheep’s Milk Cheeses from SD&G comes from Canreg Station Pasture Dairy in Finch, Ontario and is owned by Josef & Barb Regli. “Small batches of Old World sheep’s milk cheeses, aged without chemicals, produced and packaged in the on-farm cheese house. Sheep are raised on a grass and hay diet, which makes their milk higher in essential minerals and amino acids.

Sheep’s milk is easy for those with lactose intolerance to digest- in fact it is often the only cheese they can eat.”
Served with home-made pumpernickel bread supplied by Fledermaus Farm.
