Nettle Meadow Sanctuary Farm was founded in 1990 and is the home to well over 130 farm sanctuary animals. Nettle Meadow is committed to the principles of natural ingredients, happy and healthy animals, and carefully hand-crafted artisan cheeses. We have recently brought in their fromage blanc and chevre in our gourmet cheese department. Traditionally, fromage blanc is a fresh cow's milk cheese, but Nettle Meadow crafts theirs from goat's milk. It has a soft, spreadable texture and tangy, milky flavor. These cheeses are very versatile and are great on everything from a toasted bagel to a dip for veggies!
Aged six months or more, Midnight Moon is a blushing, ivory-colored goat cheese that’s nutty and brown buttery up front with a long caramel finish. Similar to a Gouda, as Midnight Moon ages, protein crystals form and lend a slight crunch to the otherwise dense and smooth cheese. Know someone who (gasp!) doesn’t like goat cheese? Encourage them to dip their toes back in the water with Midnight Moon, which has been known to convert even the staunchest of goat cheese critics.
