The estimable Murray’s Cheese in NYC spotlighted Twin Maple Farm’s Hudson Red cheese today. Doug, the original Hudson farmers’ market cheese guy, is no longer their cheese maker, but the cheese is still good. The image above shows it slathered on a local baguette a short while back. It did not last long. Yum.
Don’t buy it on Amazon – you should be able to find it this weekend at the Hudson Farmers’ Market.
Sadly, I missed the tour this year but will have to go next year. I am always willing to taste more Hudson Red cheese…
I wonder if the new-ish Kinderhook Creek cheese from Old Chatham Sheepherding is available at their self service “store” or only in NYC???
Update 5/4: it’s even made the NY Times.
I just learned that January 20th is National Cheese Lover’s Day. I do not feel the need to fact-check that – I think I will just reach for the macaroni and cheese…
But take a moment to ponder our local offerings (most available through Pampered Cow):
Twin Maple Farm’s Hudson Red
Old Chatham Sheepherding Company – Hudson Valley Camembert as well as Ewe’s Blue
Coach Farm goat cheese
Nettle Meadow‘s Kunik (I still can’t get over this one)
Palantine Cheese – cheddar
R&G Cheesemakers (several cheeses available)
Berkshire Blue – a blue cheese from the Berkshires…
Hawthorne Valley Farm cheeses – several available from this biodynamic farm
I’m sure I’ve forgotten some – there are enough to make several cheese plates. Grab a nearby cheese lover for a meal of cheese and enjoy!
