Nationally Renowned Nettle Meadow Farm Cheesemaker to Move to Lake Luzerne
Regional Nettle Meadow Farm has made its mark in the cheese world and is moving its production facility to the former Hitching Post restaurant on Rt 9N in the near future. The cheese company received two grants from NYS Regional Economic Development and Warren County Local Development totaling $235,000 to move to the 14,000 sq. ft. log cabin, and is in the process of moving according to Lake Luzerne Supervisor Gene Merlino. More to follow as it develops.
Nettle Meadow rescues animals as well
Since Nettle Meadow was founded, the farm has also served as an animal sanctuary, with goats, sheep, and other farm animals roaming on 75 acres.
The farm is a tourist attraction, where visitors learn how the farm’s staff nurtures a wide variety of farm animals, including llamas, horses, donkeys, chicken, ducks, turkeys, and pigs — of all stages in life, many of them rescued. The enterprise’s web page notes the farm is committed to the principles of “happy and healthy animals” and sustainable farming practices.
