Nettle Meadow Farm is a 50 acre goat and sheep dairy and cheese company in Thurman, New York just below Crane Mountain in the Adirondacks. Owned and operated by Lorraine Lambiase and Sheila Flanagan, the farm, which is run with the assistance of Sheila’s mother, Joan Flanagan, was originally founded in 1990 and is the home of over 300 goats, several dozen sheep and a variety of farm sanctuary animals.
Kunik is a white mold-ripened, voluptuous triple crème cheese made from goat’s milk and Jersey cow cream. The blend makes Kunik far richer and more flavorful than a brie-type cheese yet more subtle and sumptuous than similarly ripened goat cheeses. This cheese has it all, ranging from thick and rich to creamy and supple and from earthy and grassy to sweet and buttery.
