It was another beautiful Spring day and so we headed to Long Valley NJ to the Valley Shepherd Creamery.

First there was the video of the cheese making process, the tour through the factory and the most important cheese tasting!

Then we got to pat the baby lambs…
(they had over 100 of them and 5 had been born that morning)
