Petit Nuage cheese
Landmark Creamery had interesting inception. Anna and Anna moved to Albany at the same time in 2009, but didn’t meet until they found themselves at a potluck for Green County Women in Sustainable Agriculture three years later. Anna Landmark was there because she had a small farm, Anna Thomas Bates was there because as a food writer and proponent of sustainable agriculture, she loves to learn about local food, farms and the incredible women who run them. They grew closer when they found their four-year-olds in the same 4-K class at school.
Landmark plunged into full-time cheese making in August 2013. Over homemade Old Fashioneds, the two Annas plotted a partnership dreaming of creamy sheep milk and buttery pasture-grazed cow milk, carefully handcrafted into beautiful, delicious cheese.
