AUGUSTA — Sunday, October 13th, the Maine Cheese Guild presents the 12th annual Open Creamery Day. 18 Maine creameries around the state will open their doors and their barns, inviting the public to taste award-winning cheeses, meet the animals that make the milk, and tour the creameries to learn about the tradition of Maine cheesemaking.
Cheesemaking in Maine has boomed in the last decade with hundreds of cheeses to taste straight from the source. Take in the spectacular sights of the Maine fall foliage and visit a local orchard, brewery, or winery along the way. Each creamery will offer a unique experience.
Please see the Maine Cheese Guild map for details on participating creameries and to see more of what each has to offer.
The hours for particular farms may vary. Please check www.mainecheeseguild.org for business lisitings and a link for a map and printable pdf.
