Saturday, April 30, we’re having our first Annual Kid Hugging Day at Appleton Creamery. We invite you to come on out to the farm between 11am and 4pm to meet some of our future generation of milkers, and get in a little goat snuggle. Then, follow the newly created Appleton Cheese Trail, and visit ME Water Buffalo Co., and hug some of their calves!

You can read all about our new farm stand and the Appleton Cheese Trail here. We’ll be open at the farm for goat viewing and cheese buying every Saturday, 11 to 5 from June 18 through October.
