Sappy Ewe, Nettle Meadow 9/~6oz $/#
Sappy Ewe is our newest bloomy rind cheese. 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 a dramatic finish. This cheese is a true symphony of traditional Adirondack flavors and just won a Second Place Distinction at the 2017 U.S. Cheese Championships for mixed milk bloomy rinds (after our own Briar Summit).
About Nettle Meadow
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.
Nettle 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 and are well known for our semi-aged cheeses, including our award winning triple crème, Kunik, made from goat milk and Jersey cow cream, Nettle Peaks and Crane Mountain made from 100% goat milk. Our recent award winners include Amber Kunik, Sappy Ewe, Briar Summit and Slate Ridge. Our sheep milk cheeses include our award winning Three Sisters made from sheep, goat and cow milk, Simply Sheep, made from all sheep’s milk, and Penny’s Pride, a hard mold ripened sheep and cow milk combination. We offer a wide selection of chevres and fromage blancs and have a number of new exciting cheeses, including our new washed rind line and our mixed milk Fromage Frais blended cheeses.
