Since 1998, artisan cheese makers Miles as well as Janet King have silently created a broad range of supreme ewe as well as cow’s milk cheeses on their idyllic 30-acre farm on the outskirts of Masterton, New Zealand.
Kingsmeade started making ewe’s milk cheeses with milk from their very own flock of East Friesian sheep. Clover, chicory, plantain as well as lucerne cover broad, green meadows. The sheep are big, contented and also loaded with individuality– no requirement to round them up at milking time, they listen to Miles’ voice and come on their very own.
After years of hands on care, meticulous records as well as genetic studies, Miles’ flock has actually turned into New Zealand’s initial registered sheep milking breed – Dairymeade.
Today, Kingsmeade makes 9 different varieties of cheese, a lot of from ewe’s milk as well as some from cow’s. All are uniquely hand crafted, varying from aged hard varieties to deliciously creamy.
Tranquility and also silently spoken, Miles is hands-on from the first steamy breath of the newborn lambs to the daily milking, cheesemaking, cutting as well as packaging. Each batch of cheese is hand made in the manufacturing facility on the farm, right next to the family home. Janet runs the distribution, cheerfully dispatching orders around New Zealand.
