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.
Kunik is our triple crème wheel made from goat’s milk and Jersey cow cream. It was the 2010 Triple Crème Blue Ribbon Winner at the American Cheese Society’s annual North American Cheese Contest. 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.
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. Three Sisters has a complex flavor, firm texture and bloomy rind, and comes in a manageable 4 to 8 ounce wheel.
Crane Mountain is a square block of semi-aged chevre made with 100% goat’s milk and covered with a white rind. From it’s feta-like youth through it’s stronger flavor development, 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 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.
Penny’s Pride is our newest creation. It is a hard cheese with a mold ripened rind aged for at least one month and good for up to one year. It is made primarily of sheep milk with some cow milk reminiscent of a nutty cheese in the cheddar family. Penny’s Pride is sold in wedges or 4 pound wheels.
