Old Chatham Sheepherding Co. in upstate New York produces a creamy sheep's-milk cheese, Kinderhook Creek, then sends it to Murray's in Manhattan where it's used to create two new flavored cheeses: The Hudson Flower is covered with herbs tasty enough to convert sworn rind-haters, and the C-Local is washed in beer from Brooklyn Brewery and aged for an earthy funkiness.
