Our August 2012 meeting took place at Creeping Thyme in Buxton. Marie & Tim Clements gave us all a guided tour of their barns, milk room and cheese rooms. Then they spread out a feast of cheeses and fudges from their amazing array of products. Those little goats sure work hard!
Eric Rector and Heather Donahue both gave excellent presentations about their experiences at the recent American Cheese Society meeting and Traktec’s Donna Murray was on hand to tell us about their Maine -based label manufacturing company.
Talk of the Town Farm is a small goat dairy located in Connor TWP, Maine. We are just north of Caribou and we are currently the only licensed goat dairy in Aroostook County. We are still growing our herd of Nubians, La Manchas and a few crosses.
Currently we offer raw goat milk. We plan to have fresh Chevre and yogurt in August. Our products can be found at the Caribou Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays 3 to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. until fall. We are also at the Bread of Life store in Presque Isle and Sleeper’s Market in Caribou.
Come taste our wonderful milk from our hard working girls!

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.

Flying Goat Farm produces small hand-crafted batches of fresh chevre in several varieties, as well as feta. We are also known to occasionally make goats’ milk yogurt, and sweet chevres for special occasions. We strive to manage our small herd of (spoiled) Nubian dairy goats with a primarily natural and holistic approach and it is important to us to know each animal as an individual. Simply put, we believe that tasty cheese comes from happy and healthy animals!

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.
fresh and aged goat cheeses
In 2004, York Hill Farm celebrated its twentieth year of producing farmstead fresh and aged goat cheeses! Fresh cheeses are produced in plain or herb varieties, including our beautiful Chevre Roll with a swirl of dill or peppercorns. Capriano is our unusual and distinctive dry-aged goat cheese. This cheese combines a slightly sharp goats milk character with sweet caramel-like tones. Wheels are aged in their natural rinds for up to a year in our cheese cellar.
York Hill Farm cheese available from the farm and at specialty stores throughout New England
Product sold: retail, wholesale, on site.
We are currently the only licensed cheesemaker in Washington County. We make several flavors of chevre as well as Feta and some fruit cheeses.
Cheeses available at: Winter Harbor Farmer’s Market, Milbridge Farmer’s Market, Southwest Harbor Farmer’s Market, and on-farm.
