How you spend your food dollars does make a difference – with a Shepherd’s Way CSA you are directly supporting local, sustainable food production, artisan cheesemaking, and a small family farm.

Farm History

 

Steven Read and Jodi Ohlsen Read established Shepherd’s Way Farms in rural Carver County Minnesota with a small flock of dairy sheep in 1994.

Our Sheep


Since its beginning, Shepherd’s Way Farms has gained national attention for both its livestock and value-added dairy operations.

Barn on the Move


The rescued barn will become housing for 200+ lambs, replacing the lamb nursery that was destroyed in an arson fire January 2005.

Artisan cheesemaking is a rare craft in the United States and sheep milk cheesemaking is even more unusual. One of the most well-known farmstead sheep cheesemaking families lives and works in Minnesota, one hour south of Minneapolis.


Shepherd’s Way Farms is a family-based, family-run farm – the farm family consists of Jodi & Steven and their four boys, Aidan, Elia, Isaiah and Maitias.
