Lamb Chopper®

Aged Sheep Milk Cheese Made Exclusively For Cypress Grove in Holland

Lamb Chopper® is our only sheep milk cheese, but that’s not its only claim to fame. Lamb Chopper has a buttery color, smooth texture, and is mild on the palate, but don’t equate “mild” with “lack of complexity” — this is a nutty, subtly sweet cheese that’s semi-firm and meltable, thanks to the higher fat in sheep milk. Aged three months, Lamb Chopper® is a real crowd pleaser and a favorite with kids — some might even call it the “type O” cheese.

  • How do I store Lamb Chopper?

    To optimize the quality of Lamb Chopper, keep cheese cold (32°–44.6°F).

    To maintain original condition after cutting keep cheese wrapped tightly in plastic wrap to prevent drying.

    Remove Lamb Chopper from the refrigerator at least one hour before serving.

    Lamb Chopper has a microbial (non-animal) rennet type. Whole wheels have an optimal shelf life of 300 days uncut, and 1 lb wedges purchased from our web store have a shelf life of 150 days (*please note: for 1 lb wedges, this is from the date cut, not the date shipped).

    What does “cut and wrap” mean?

    Because many of our cheeses are produced in large wheels, retailers cut and wrap the cheeses into smaller wedges. You’ll find our soft-ripened cheeses and aged cheeses sold this way, but if you’re searching for a whole wheel, ask your cheesemonger — they can usually order one for you!
