Kunik is a semi-aged, triple cream wheel cheese made from 25% Jersey cow cream and 75% goat's milk. It has an edible, bloomy white rind; a tangy, buttery flavor; and a thick, smooth, creamy texture. The addition of high-milkfat Jersey cow cream makes the cheese more rich and flavorful than a brie cheese, but less pungent than a pure goat cheese.[1]


Kunik is produced at Nettle Meadow Goat Farm in Thurman, New York.[2]
