Open Creamery Day is scheduled for this Sunday, October 11, 11 – 3, at cheesemakers all around the state, sponsored by the Maine Cheese Guild.
As the hardwood foliage bursts in a blaze of colors on Columbus Day weekend, here is an opportunity to take in the spectacular sights and to taste some award winning cheese at the same time. Visit the creameries, meet the animals, and learn the stories behind Maine’s more than 150 artisan cheeses. Along the way you can also visit a farmers’ market, stop at an orchard, explore one of Maine’s premier breweries or winemakers, and drop in on one of the many artisan breadmakers our state has to offer. You’ll love the views, but you’ll remember the taste!
Check the Maine Cheese Guild’s website, www.mainecheeseguild.org, for a full listing of all participating creameries, as well as maps to each of them.
