Don’t be sheepish — come try out some delicious handmade farmstead artisan sheep cheese! Located in Rexburg, Idaho, Rosemary And Thyme Creamery knows that caring for a flock of 24 sheep is the most important part of the cheese making process, therefore the sheep are fed the very best pasture and hay. Come try for yourself at today’s market!
