CORNWALL, NY — Talitha Thurau and Dan Jones are betting there’s a market for their goat’s milk cheese in the Hudson Valley.
Production got under way in earnest in the past few weeks at their Edgwick Farm on Angola Road.
And when the Edgwick Farm brand appears on shelves at farmers markets, special events and elsewhere, it will include five varieties whose names will be very familiar to anyone who knows the Cornwall area.
There’s Canterbury, a soft goat’s milk cheese; Marinated Canterbury, which is seasoned with herbs and garlic; Moodna, a feta cheese; Sackett Ridge, a cheddar; and Trestle, a ricotta with basil and garlic.
“There’s a long-standing tradition among artisans and farmstead cheese makers to name their cheeses after local places,” Thurau said.
