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 is our triple crème wheel made from goat’s milk and cow cream. It won a Second Place finish at the 2019 U.S. Cheese Championships and a Good Food Award in 2018.  It was the 2010 Triple Crème Blue Ribbon Winner at the American Cheese Society’s annual North American Cheese Contest and a Gold Medal Winner at the 2016 World Cheese Championship and a gold medal winner at the New York State Fair in 2016.   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.  (Photo Courtesy of Pattie Garrett)

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.  Winner of the 2019 Silver Sofi for Non-Cow Cheeses.

Three Sisters

Three Sisters is made from a combination of sheep, goat and cow milks. It was a 2012 American Cheese Society’s Mixed Milk Open Category winner and a Fourth Place Finisher at the U.S. Cheese Championships in 2017. Three Sisters has a complex flavor, firm texture and bloomy rind, and comes in a manageable 6 to 8 ounce crotin dimension.

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.  (Photo Courtesy of Pattie Garrett)

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.  2019 U.S. Cheese Championship Second Place winner and 2018 Third Place World Cheese Championship winner.  7 to 9 ounce wheels that accentuate the fresh clean flavors of our milk.

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.  First Place Winner at the 2017 U.S. Cheese Championships for mixed milk bloomy rind cheeses, 2018 American Cheese Society Second Place Winner and 2018 World Cheese Championship 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 and won First Place at the U.S. Cheese Championships in 2019, Second Place for Mixed milk cheeses at the American Cheese Society in 2018.

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.
