Appleton Creamery – For Sale

Mucking out th barns

Appleton Creamery  as you know it will be closing its doors at the end of the season this year.

After 26 years in business, and 41 years raising goats, ill health is precipitating our decision to take it easy and begin checking things off our bucket list. The goats will not be bred this fall, so cheesemaking will wind down. We will sell cheese until it is gone, sometime this winter. The farm is for sale so we can move in town closer to services. The business is for sale separately in hopes someone will carry on our brand. Serious inquiries only. We hope to continue in some capacity with teaching classes (when the COVID danger has passed) and consulting.

Contact us here if you or someone you know is interested in purchasing Appleton Creamery, the business, or a rural farm in Appleton Maine with orchard, vineyard, barn, house and outbuildings.

Stay Informed – Join Our Mailing List

We’re sending out weekly updates. We invite you to keep informed on where to find our cheese, what’s happening on the farm and any news we may have relating to the Covid-19 pandemic and how it affects our business.  Use the signup form below.
