2018 Kid Hugging Day

Kid Hugging Day 2018We’ll be kicking off the 2018 goat cheese season with our annual Kid Hugging Day. In addition to our version of kid olympics (baby goats, that is), we’ll be joined at the Farm by the YumBus, offering tacos and crepes, and Stone Fox Creamery ice cream. Fuzzy Udder Creamery will be offering hot chocolate made with goats milk, and sheep’s milk truffles.  You can find a map to Appleton Creamery here. Children are welcome and encouraged, but please, leave your pets at home.  Map to the farm here.

After you hug our kids, we suggest you catch these other Midcoast Cheese Trail members, also hosting Kid Hugging Day on Sunday.  Copper Tail Farm in Waldoboro, and Fuzzy Udder Creamery in Whitefield invite you to stop by the farms on Sunday, April 22, 11-4, to meet and cuddle kids (baby goats), sample and buy the first goat cheeses of the season, and learn about goats and sheep and how cheese is made.

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. At the farm you’ll also have the option of purchasing a cheese tasting plate guided by one of the Appleton Creamery cheesemakers.
