Sheep seem to figure prominently in sayings about fashion, whether youre considering a wolf in sheeps clothing or mutton dressed as lamb. And, with yogurt fashion, its no different.
The biggest fad in yogurt these days is sheeps milk yogurt by Sonomas Bellwether Farms. Gushed about by food fashion mag Food & Wine, its the most delicious, healthiest, most eco-friendly yogurt to hit the stores in recent years. Ultracreamy, the yogurts tang is mild, and it shows off a long, rich, irresistible finish.
The sheep that live at Bellwetherwhich also makes gourmet cheeses and crème fraîche as lovely as a cloudenjoy the stunning scenery of the hills of western Sonoma and graze on organically treated pastures. For them, Bellwether is like a spa, without the hot stone-massage. All of this comes through in the flavor of the yogurt, of course, and there doesnt seem to be even the slightest taste of rancor regarding hot-stone massage not being part of the 24-7 sheep-coddling regimen.
Best of all, Bellwether Farms sheeps milk yogurt has more protein, more calcium, and less saturated fat than yogurt made of cows milk. Those are product stats that should never go out of fashion.
