Kid Hugging Day at Appleton Creamery

Sunday, April 28th 2019, 11 am to 4 pm

Caitlin's Favorite Kids

Kid Hugging DayThis is our annual event where you get to snuggle with the herd’s youngsters, up close and personal and see the Appleton version of kid olympics (baby goats, that is). Bring the children but leave the dog at home, please. Wear your farm boots and dress for any weather.

We’ll have plenty of cheese for sale, so pack your cooler too. Map to the farm is here.

After you hug our kids, we suggest you catch some other Midcoast Cheese Trail members in the area, who are also hosting Kid, Lamb and Calf Hugging Day events.


Day at the Dairy

Appleton Creamery WorkshopsOffered on Tuesday Only in the off-season

In the winter when the goats are dry, I make cow cheese. Join me for a day of cheesemaking as I make my weekly cheese. Some weeks I will be making a hard cheese — ranging from a tomme to gouda to havarti to jack — and some weeks I’ll be making a bloomy rind cheese. There is some flexibility as to what we make. The Day is 9 am to 3 pm. Plan to bring clean, waterproof shoes or boots to wear in the creamery.

Fee $75. Includes a light lunch. Continue reading
