Enjoy Hudson River Valley’s nationally renowned cheeses
In the past 20 years, the reputation and quality of our local and regional cheeses has grown exponentially. Hand-crafted, award-winning cheeses are coming from all around our Valley.
We are proud to feature other local artisanal cheesemakers. The Old Chatham Creamery’s sheep’s milk Old Chatham Camembert and Kinderhood Creek are award-winners. Nettle Meadow’s Kunik inspired Esquire magazine to rave, “Kunik. It may very well be the sexiest cheese in the U.S.A.” Come in soon and see what’s new and what’s ripened to perfection, like Chaseholm Camembert from Chaseholm Creamery. Then there’s the wide selection from R&G Creamery, Four Fat Fowl, Jake’s Gouda and McGrath creamery. Our Hudson Valley Cheese pride is always on display.
Many of the world’s finest cheeses can be found at Adams
France, alone, reputedly has over 240 different cheeses and we offer many of the finest examples of the French cheese making art–St. Angel, Fromage D’Affinois, St. Andre, Vacherousse, Roquefort, St. Agur and so many others. British cheesemaking has grown more creative in the past 20 years (even the French love it) and Adams carries classics like Blue Stilton, Cotswald and other exciting new tastes. Shop here for classic Italian cheeses such as creamy blue Dolce Gorgonzola, delicate Taleggio, Grana Padano, aged Provolone, real Parmesan and Romano. Plus, there’s Australian Sheep & Goat Cheese and Old Croc Cheddar, Mexican Queso Fresco and Cotija, Spanish Manchego and Drunken Goat, Dutch Gouda and Beemster. We can’t go on. You’ll just have to come in and see for yourself!
