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.
Serve melted with sauteed mushrooms and polenta.
Shave over melon, mint and prosciutto salad.
Melt between rustic sliced bread for a grilled cheese everyone will love.
Brown Ale, IPAs, Porters
Sauvignon Blanc, Unoaked Chardonnay, Vouvray

- 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!
