OPENING FOR THE SEASON ON SUNDAY, APRIL 28th, our annual Kid Hugging Day, 11 – 4.
We’ll have updates on this, our Jubilee 25th Anniversary season coming soon! Check out our Silver Jubilee page.
Our farm stand will be open both Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm for the 2019 season. We’re at 780 Gurneytown Road in Appleton. Credit/debit welcome.
When the stand is open you can hang out on the deck and view the goats, purchase Appleton Creamery cheese and assorted products, and if one of our cheese makers is available, we just might be selling a “guided cheese plate”, an opportunity to taste and learn about our many cheese varieties.
