Maine Open Creamery Day
October 7 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Presented by the Maine Cheese Guild, statewide
Make Lakin’s Gorges Cheese at East Forty Farm one of your stops on this annual tour of Maine cheese.
The hours for particular farms may vary and many have specially scheduled events. We will post a map of participants and additional information for 2018 as it becomes available.
As the hardwood foliage bursts in a blaze of colors on Columbus Day weekend, take in the spectacular sights and taste some award-winning cheese during the Maine Cheese Guild’s annual Open Creamery Day. Visit many of Maine’s cheese makers in their creameries, meet the animals, and learn the stories behind Maine’s more than 150 artisan cheeses. Along the way you can also visit a farmers’ market, stop at an orchard, explore one of Maine’s premier breweries or wineries, pick fruit at Maine’s legendary orchards, and drop-in on one of the many artisan bread makers our state has to offer. You’ll love the views, and the taste of Maine cheese, straight from the source, will be the best memory of all!
