Nettle Meadow Farm, nationally renowned for its artisan cheeses, recently received some new media attention.
New York States of Mind, a new web-based digital magazine, has published an extensive article on Nettle Meadow.
The article, the first ever presented by the Manhattan-based magazine, focused on the history of Nettle Meadow Farm, the accomplishments of its owners Sheila Flanagan and Lorraine Lambiase, and their humane and ecologically sensitive practices.
The article also describes their ongoing project to restore their historic barn, and reveals that Flanagan and Lambiase are talking about hosting concerts and stage productions there.
The article, which can be seen at: http://bit.ly/1eKBngv, invites people to drive up to Thurman and visit the farm and its environs.
The webzine’s Editor-in-Chief said Tuesday she was pleased to discover Nettle Meadow and present it to the webzine’s Internet audience.
“At NewYorkStatesOfMind.com, we seek to be the storytellers of the state — We celebrate New Yorkers’ parallel experiences and draw connections in the unlikeliest of places,” Christine Murphy said. “We were thrilled to feature Nettle Meadow Farm — and Lorraine Lambiase and Sheila Flanagan’s efforts to restore their ravaged barn. We are excited to see what they continue to do to breathe new life into the Adirondack region.”
