April 23rd, 2016
Sheep Merry's Milk Ice Cream (メリーさんの羊アイス) is an ice cream made from sheep milk that Matsuyama Farm (松山農場) in Bifuka located between Asahikawa city and Wakkanai city sells. Niupu (仁宇布) district that there is the Matsuyama Farm is said to be set in a stage of "A Wild Sheep Chase (羊を巡る冒険)" that famous novelist Haruki Murakami (村上春樹) wrote, and this place is deeply connected with sheep. 3 kinds of sheeps, East Friesian Sheep for milking, Poll Dorset Sheep for meat and Romanov Sheep for leather are bred, and the Sheep Merry's Milk Ice Cream is made from sheep milk of the Friesland Sheep. Speaking of the ice cream, milk is commonly used, and it is the rare ice cream. Those are sold at roadside station "Bifuka (美深)", Farm Inn Tonttu (ファームイントント) and Koibu (コイブ) run by the Matsuyama Farm.
I had come to Bifuka, and I visited the Farm Inn Tonttu to buy the Sheep Merry's Milk Ice Cream. The price is JPY 324. This place has an atomosphere, and I ate the ice cream while looking over the sheep on the side of a ranch. White ice cream came into my eyes when I open a cover, and I spooned the ice cream up with a wooden spoon, but the ice cream was hard unexpectedly. The taste was very rich and was not too sweet, and it was well balanced. Besides, I had thought that the ice cream had a beast smell before I ate the ice cream, but it did not have the beast smell at all. Good taste! The sheep milk seems to be more higher in lipid and protein than milk, and it is better for the health. In addition, sheep milk yogurts and sheep milk as well as the ice cream are sold.
