‘Udderly’ good cheese at Old Chatham Creamery in Groton

I discovered Old Chatham Creamery by chance, while enjoying some wine and cheese with friends. The bleu cheese we were eating was delicious, and I looked at the package to see where I could get more of it. The name, “Ewe’s Blue,” and the cute black sheep on the label were my first surprise — this Roquefort-style cheese was made entirely of sheep’s milk. My second surprise came when I saw where it was made — Groton, New York.
