Ep:34 Sheep's Milk Ice Cream! Interview with Delaney of Ewe and Me Homestead
In this week's episode, I chatted with Delaney Drake of Ewe and Me Homestead & Creamery. After dealing with dietary health issues, Delaney assumed dairy was off-limits. That was until her sister introduced her to sheep's milk cheese, which her body amazingly could handle!
