August Featured Cheese: "Kunik"

Posted On Monday, July 28, 2014

It's hot out! Why not open a bottle of Rosè and enjoy this months cheese feature?! Kunik by Nettle Meadow Farm is just the cheese for that. This semi-aged triple cream is made from 25% Jersey cow cream and 75% goats milk. The unique combination creates a cheese that is tangy and buttery in flavor, yet smooth with a creamy texture. The addition of the cream to this bloomy rind cheese makes it rich and more flavorful than a brie and less pungent than a goats milk cheese.

Nettle Meadow Farm is a goat and sheep dairy in Thurman, New York just below the Crane Mountain in the Adirondacks. It was originally founded in 1990 and is the home of over 300 goats, dozens of sheep and a variety of farm sanctuary animals. Come in today and try this fabulous new addition to our store!  Submitted by Aaron Akins - Cheese, Provisions, and Retail Merchandise Buyer
