Whispering Pines has the only licensed sheep dairy in South Carolina.

The Sheep milk kefir and Yogurt is a big favorite at the market every year. Deb Webster is the owner and cheese maker who has developed the recipes, which she has been doing since she started with dairy goats and a few sheep in 1998. She has won awards in National competitions with her unique recipes for cheese and kefir.
Whispering Pines is one of just a few dairies in the whole US to milk and make cheeses from their own A2 Jersey cows, sheep, and goats. They make Semi-hard and soft cheeses from each species as well as some blended milk cheeses. Whispering Pines will bring bottled milk to the market by request.
Whispering Pines offers pastured lamb. Cuts such as chops, ground, ribs, and sausage. Whole and half lamb can be requested.

They offer classes in milking, cheese making, sheep (and goat) care, fences, forages and more. They have starter flocks for sale and mentoring for people wanting to raise their own source of proteins.
