Nettle Meadow Sanctuary Farm is the home to well over 100 farm sanctuary animals and a cheese company in Thurman, New York just below Crane Mountain in the Adirondacks between Gore Mountain/North Creek and Warrensburg. 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. Nettle Meadow Farm was originally founded in 1990, and is truly a staple of the American artisan cheese industry.
Nettle Meadow Kunik, 12oz - Kunik is a bloomy rind triple crème wheel made from goat’s milk and cow cream.
