Steven Read and Jodi Ohlsen Read established Shepherd’s Way Farms in rural Carver County, Minnesota, with a small flock of sheep in 1994. The farm relocated to Nerstrand, Minnesota in 2001 as a farmstead cheese dairy. Now located just outside Northfield, Minnesota, the farm is across from the Big Woods State Park. Within three years, Shepherd’s Way Farms had grown to be one of the largest dairy flocks in the country.
