La Bergerie du Lochet - Sixt Fer-à-Cheval



A farmer's daughter, Karine was a school teacher for 12 years. In 2010, she made a radical change of direction to set up her sheep farm.

She now looks after 80 dairy ewes and has joined her husband's business and his 660 sukling sheep. 

Ewe's milk tomme

At the Bergerie du Lochet, ewe's milk is used to produce tomme, Tenneverge cheese, Buet cheese and yoghurts.

One dairy ewe produces roughly 1L of milk per day and around 6L of milk are required to make 1 Kg of ewes milk cheese.
