Nettle Meadow Bulk Fromage Frais – 6/1#

Located in the
Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, Nettle Meadow Farm serves as both an
animal sanctuary and artisan cheese company. Cheesemaker/owners Sheila Flanagan
and Lorraine Lambiase are, first and foremost, dedicated to caring for their animals.
Their elegant and flavorful cheeses are the icing on the cake. Zuercher &
Co. appreciates the natural and humane practices of Nettle Meadow Farm:

·        
Organic hay, grains, wild herbs,
raspberry leaf, garlic, and kelp are used to feed the animals.

·        
The animals’ diet helps to impart high
butterfat contents in the milk.

·        
Their animal sanctuary rehabilitates
injured or abandoned animals.

·        
Retired milkers are allowed to spend
the rest of their years on the farm, rather than be slaughtered – a more usual
fate in commercial operations.

Made from a
combination of goat and cow’s milk, Nettle Meadow Bulk Fromage Frais strikes a
lovely balance between tangy, fluffy chèvre and sweet, fresh whipped cream
cheese. We have received a growing number of requests for a bulk version of this
cheese, and this format is helpful to the foodservice operation and home cook
alike. We are now offering a versatile plain fromage frais in 1-pound tubs,
available on our pre-order list.

Nettle Meadow’s
Bulk Fromage Frais has a myriad of uses:

·        
Stuff meats or poultry with seasoned
fromage frais before roasting.

·        
Use as a filling for French toast and
crêpes.

·        
Substitute fromage frais for cream
cheese in cheesecake or dessert       bars.

·        
Fill mushroom caps or phyllo dough
appetizers for a fresh twist in appetizers.

·        
Add to a strata, quiche or frittata
for brunch.

·        
Stuff into baked apples or grilled
peaches for a simple dessert.

·        
Dollop on puréed soups, or spread on a
crostini to serve alongside salads.

·        
Its neutral flavor makes it a great
canvas for adding honey, pepper, jam, herbs, tapenade, so you are only
inhibited by your imagination.

·        
Purchasing in a bulk format allows
your cheese counter to offer varying amounts to the customer.
