At Tide Mill Creamery we make cheese and yogurt in a small-scale, licensed facility located on a nine-generation family farm on Maine’s easternmost coast. The Creamery uses only certified organic milk from Tide Mill Organic Farm’s dairy cows which are rotationally grazed on seaside pastures right here on the farm. All Tide Mill Creamery products are joyfully hand-made in small batches. We run our business with a spirit of stewardship for the land and our community.

Visit our farm at our new location and sample our fresh and aged cheeses. All our cheeses are made with fresh milk from our own Nubian goats and with the delicious, organic milk from the Jersey cows at our partner farm, Clovercrest. We are two family farms working together with a passion and dedication to our animals and the milk they provide. Meet the cheesemakers and the goats (the true artisans) of Olde Oak Farm.
December 14th Holiday Party at Liberty Fields Farm, Saco where it was —
What a great event.
Besides the warm and spirited hosting by Liberty Fields Farm, our Holiday Party featured seven different Tommes made from the same recipe but each bearing the flavor, milk type, local flora and personality of the cheesemakers around the state. There were hard and soft pate’s, there were buttery and silky textures, there was “goaty” and “cow-y” and complex flavors — sometimes all in the same cheese (Appleton Creamery brought a triple-milk version). There was also bright red local membrillo to accompany the panoply of personal cheeses. It was a lesson about how much of the local cheesemaker goes into making their cheese.
