Old Chatham Kinderhook Creek 12oz
Old-school American town, new-school American cheese. Kinderhook Creek is a new kid on the block from New York's Old Chatham Sheepherding Company, made from pure East Friesian sheep milk sourced from the Old Chatham flock and local Amish farms. Named for the stream that crosses their farm, the flavor of Kinderhook Creek is designed to embody the flavors of Old Chatham's land. Creamy with bright, grassy flavors, we mature it to mushroomy perfection in our own caves. When aged, the cheese softens to a spreadable paste, and a hint of floral fragrance erupts from the rind - a scent reminiscent to the fields that the sheep graze in. Keep it local with a Long Island Cabernet Franc and New York City's finest Z Crackers.
Just the Facts
The iconic label stands out in our cheese case – the black sheep on the green background is tough to miss. And in some ways the cheese from this trailblazing producer in Chatham, New York is the black sheep of the business…they haven’t changed the way they do things in nearly 20 years! The equipment may have been upgraded, but they still cherish old-fashioned cheese-making methods…time, attention and the best milk possible.
