Our Farms

The gentlest milk comes from here

Our milk comes from dedicated and professionally-run farms in New Zealand's Central North Island where our high-quality, grass-fed sheep milk is produced batch-fresh and crafted with care. The region's clean air, high sunshine hours, and good rainfall means bountiful, pure fresh water and an abundance of grass. Our lush pastures are naturally rich in red and white clover, a key ingredient in raising healthy milking sheep.

World-class sheep dairy expertise

Spring Sheep has New Zealand’s leading farming team in sheep milking, who have won multiple awards and significantly contributed to the growth of New Zealand's sheep milking industry.

Our sheep milk

Grass-fed advantage

Grass-fed sheep milk is it is one of the most nutritious milks available and is also proven to taste better than regular (grain-fed) sheep milk.

Lower environmental impact

Sheep milking is more environmentally sustainable than conventional dairying, with 30-50% lower impact on the land.

Progressive animal welfare

Our grass-fed sheep enjoy fresh New Zealand air, advanced nutrition, quality shelter on our hybrid farms, and the very best veterinary support.
