The Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Coop is a premier maker of artisanal sheep milk cheeses and the single largest source of high quality sheep milk for cheese plants in the United States. Comprised of 15 family farms that milk between 100-400 sheep seasonally, the herd is comprised of the East Friesian and Laucaune breeds.  During the spring and summer, the sheep graze freely on pasture and fed a limited amount of natural grain while being milked.  The cheese is made under the direction of Bob Wills at Cedar Grove Cheese Company in Plain, Wisconsin and aged through Bear Valley Affinage with Jen Brozak.

Mona is made with a blend of sheep milk and cow milk and aged a minimum of six months, Mona develops a very distinctive, mild and pleasant taste with a firm and somewhat moist texture with notes of grass, nuts and browned butter.  The more aged wheels become slightly drier and more crumbly.
