Nettle Meadow Kunik

Kunik is a triple cream cheese manufactured by Nettle Meadow Farm in the Southern Adirondack Park in Thurman, New York. Its name means "snowball" in Eskimo. The white, mold ripened cheese is made from 75% goat's milk and 25% Jersey cow's cream. Its unique recipe makes it more creamy and delicious than typical Brie yet subtle and sumptuous to taste than other ripened goat cheeses.

The animals on the Nettle Meadow Farm are fed only certified organic grains, hay and a wide variety of wild and domesticated herbs empowering Kunik cheese with a tangy, creamy flavour and a thick, smooth, creamy texture. It can be served with Champagne.
