Excellent Award-Winning Cheeses
from Goat, Sheep and Cow Milk

Nettle Meadow Farm is truly committed to the artisanal nature of each of our cheeses, the use of natural and organic ingredients and the well-being of all our animals.

Semi-Aged Cheeses

Kunik

Kunik is our triple crème wheel made from goat’s milk and cow cream. It has a white rind and a tangy buttery flavor. Delicious on its own or with fruit and crackers. A wonderful addition to any cheese plate. Larger wheels vary in size from 11 to 16 ounces. “Buttons” are also available and are smaller in size ranging from 7 to 12 ounces.  “Minis” are now available in an easy 3.5 ounce format for grab and go convenience.

Awards: American Cheese Society (2010 Triple Crème Blue Ribbon), U.S. Cheese Championship (2019 Second Place) and World Cheese Championship (2016 Gold Medal), Good Food Award (2019) and the New York International Cheese Competition (2021 Silver Medal).

 

Amber Kunik with Amber Ale

Amber Kunik

KUNIK has been a nationally acclaimed goat’s milk and cow cream triple crème for many years now and many did not think it could get much better. But, then we introduced AMBER KUNIK! The triple crème you know and love washed in Adirondack Beer and Adirondack Whiskey. This is a funky twist on our beloved triple crème resulting in a denser velvety textured washed rind with just a hint of spirits and balanced with plenty of funk.   (Photo Courtesy of Pattie Garrett)

Award: Sofi for Non-Cow Cheeses (2019 Silver)

Truffle Kunik

This is our classic, best-selling and award-winning goat’s milk with cow cream triple creme cheese, with a fragrant and powerful truffle line.  We paired with Truffleist from New York City to create this cheese.  The truffle bits and oil infuse throughout the entire cheese, making each bite creamier than the last as the cream from the cheese and oil combine.  This is a can’t miss cheese.  Sold in our button format.

Adiron-Jack

This triple creme all cow’s milk cheese is one of our creamiest.  The unctuous creme line is complimented by a local apple jack brandy.  Floral apple notes bring out the natural grassy flavors of our Jersey cow milk, while the creaminess developed in our aging process is picked up by the alcohol in the brandy.

Awards: New York International Cheese Competition (2019 Silver Medal)

Three Sisters

Three Sisters is made from a combination of sheep, goat and cow milks.  Three Sisters has a complex flavor, firm texture and bloomy rind, and comes in a manageable 6 to 8 ounce crotin dimension.

Awards: American Cheese Society’s Mixed Milk Open Category (2012 Winner) and U.S. Cheese Championships (2017 4th Place).

Nettle Peaks

Nettle Peaks is an amazing mold ripened, black ash drizzled, 100% goat’s milk pyramid with an infusion of nettle tea. Nettle Peaks pyramids are approximately 8 to 11 ounces each.

Simply Sheep

Simply sheep is a semi-aged 100% sheep milk wheel.  Cultured differently from many of our other bloomy rinds, it hints of buttery smooth undertones in its youth and grows more robust in flavor as it ages.  7 to 9 ounce wheels that accentuate the fresh clean flavors of our milk.

Awards: U.S. Cheese Championship (2019 Second Place) and World Cheese Championship (2018 Third Place) and New York International Cheese Competition (2019 Silver Medal)

Crane Mountain

Crane Mountain is a simple square block of semi-aged goat’s milk cheese with no additions or adulterations.  Covered in a white bloomy rind, it has a dynamic development from it’s feta-like youth through it’s stronger flavor development as it grows older.  Crane Mountain becomes wonderfully pungent with maturity. Crane Mountain is excellent at every stage up to four months from when it is initially cellared. Sizes vary from 8 ounces to 12 ounces.

Briar Summit

Briar Summit is a creamy little pyramid of three milk goodness produced from a combination of goat milk, cow milk, sheep milk and cow cream infused with a raspberry leaf tea and finished with a bloomy rind.

Awards: U.S. Cheese Championships (2017 First place, Mixed Milk Bloomy Rind Cheeses), American Cheese Society (2018 Second Place) and World Cheese Championship (2018 Third Place Winner).

Partridge Mountain

A washed rind cow’s milk cheese infused with Juniper and Sage. Sold 6 to a case, approximately 10 ounces each.

Sappy Ewe

We coat sheep and cow curds with an Adirondack maple reduction and then form the curd in a crotin size mold.  We let them age to bloomy rind perfection in our aging cave and then pat them with edible pine black ash for both a dramatic finish and ripening effect.  This cheese is a true symphony of traditional Adirondack flavors.

Awards: U.S. Cheese Championships (2019 First Place), American Cheese Society (2018, Second Place for Mixed Milk Cheeses).

Thunder Nest

A flavorful bloomy cow’s milk block of cheese infused with Caraway and Sumac. Sold 6 to a case, approximately 9 ounces each.

Prospect Mountain

This delightful cow’s milk cheese is dusted with herbs and flowers that you would find on the side of any Adirondack mountain.  The fudge center is complimented by the natural flavor and aroma of the flora patted into the rind.

Potash Mountain

This tangy pyramid made of goat and cows milk compliments any cheese board with its height and unique flavor.  The rind is dusted with our iconic vegetable black ash before it ages.  The bloomy rind grows on top of the ash, creating a delightful, multi-dimensional layer when cut into.
