We are transitioning to our after farming consulting business, Capercaillie Consulting. You can learn more about this venture that will go into full swing in late 2021, but please don’t hesitate to contact us before then on services we may be offering.
Fuzzy Udder has a self serve stand operating 24/7 and offers an array of cheeses and other products. Learn more at Fuzzyudder.com.
Jessie first apprenticed at Appleton Creamery in 2007, and fell in love with goats and cheesemaking during that time and we are elated that our herd has found a new home with her.

PAST EVENTS AT APPLETON CREAMERY
We participate in special farm events such as Kid Hugging Day, Maine Open Farm Day, Maine Cheese Guild’s Open Creamery Day, and off site at the Maine Cheese Festival and in winter, Christmas Tree Dropoff Day. Check back as the 2021 Summer season begins. We’ll post updates on our events.
CHRISTMAS TREE DROP OFF DAY
Sunday, January 3, 2021, 11 to 2
Accepting trees that have not been sprayed with anything. Please be sure that you have removed all ornaments, hangers, tinsel, garland from the tree. The goats will love you forever for sharing the joy of the holidays with them. It’s the natural way to recycle your tree.
