Nettle Meadow Farm

Happy Goat Happy Goats. Great Cheese!

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 between Gore Mountain/North Creek, New York and Warrensburg, New York. 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. The farm is run with the assistance of Sheila's mother, Joan Flanagan. Nettle Meadow Farm was originally founded in 1990 and is the home of over 300 goats, several dozen sheep and a variety of farm sanctuary animals. Visit our Farm & Sanctuary page to learn more.

Kunik Label Lorraine and LambNettle Meadow is committed to the principles of natural ingredients, happy and healthy animals, and carefully hand-crafted artisan cheeses. We make several varieties of soft goat cheeses including Lightly Salted Chevre, Tellicherry Pepper and Lemon Verbena Chevre, Chevre with Mixed Herbs, Horseradish, Olive Oil and Garlic Chevre, Maple Walnut Chevre, Pumpkin Spice Chevre and Herb, Pepper and Garlic Chevre as well as Fromage Blanc, Honey Lavender Fromage Blanc, and Rosemary Infused Fromage Blanc. We are also well known for our semi-aged cheeses, including triple crème Kunik made from goat milk and Jersey cow cream, and Crane Mountain made from 100% goat milk. Our most recent creation, Three Sisters (named after Three Sisters mountains which overshadow our farm), is made from farmstead sheep, goat and Jersey cow milk. Our newest cheese, Simply Sheep, is made from all sheep's milk. Visit our Cheeses page for more information.

Thank you for taking a look and please contact us if you have any questions about the farm, sanctuary, our cheeses, or for directions. The farm is normally open Thursday through Monday from 11am to 3pm for cheese sales. Find out about our tours—visitors with a love of animals and cheese are always welcome. We hope that you will visit us soon!
