Farm and Artisan Cheese
Nettle Meadow Sanctuary Farm is the home to well over 130 farm sanctuary animals and a cheese company in Thurman, New York, just below Crane Mountain in the Adirondacks between Gore Mountain/North Creek and Warrensburg. It is owned and operated by Lorraine Lambiase and Sheila Flanagan. Both have a great love of animals, artisan cheese and the unique challenges of farm life. Nettle Meadow Farm was originally founded in 1990. Visit our Farm & Sanctuary page to learn more.
Nettle Meadow is home to more than 40 award-winning cheeses! Kunik, a trademarked and true American original cheese has received more accolades and awards than we can list here. Also in our collection are other award-winning originals: Amber Kunik, Briar Summit, Adironjack, Sugar Loaf, and Honey Lavender Fromage Blanc.
Everything we do, we do for our Sanctuary critters. Come say hello and take a walk around our farm, meeting our beloved animals. Or, visit us at our Hitching Post location, where you can have a delightful meal, local wines and brews, and even watch our team make your favorite cheeses!
Our cheese is available for sale at both locations.
