Wandering Shepherd Cheese
Wandering Shepherd Cheese opened in 2011 as the first commercial sheep’s cheese producer in Nova Scotia. Cheese maker Ron Muise, who worked internationally as a chef, and his wife Christa MacKinnon, came home and started Fearann Kisha sheep farm in Cape Breton. Ron now produces fine artisan ewe and cow milk cheeses. Some are only produced during the sheep milking season, to make fresh cheeses that reflect the terroire of the farm. As an artisan, with a tendency to wander, Ron will produce some cheeses in limited supply while others will be available year round. Ron strives to produce the best possible cheeses that reflect his location, his beliefs about food and that taste delicious on their own or with other wonderful foods.
