Since 2009, Flying Goat Farm has been making fresh goats’ milk cheeses and yogurts in York County. Starting with a “herd” of just four animals, and two does in milk, the farm has now grown to more than 40 animals with ten does in milk this year and 20 or more expecting to be in production next year.
We have an amazing opportunity this summer to purchase some beautiful dairy equipment from a NH goat dairy that retired from the business this spring, and to help us get a leg up, we have launched a kickstarter campaign.
Please check out our project, contribute if you can, and share with your friends and other cheese fans!
Flying Goat Farm’s Kickstarter Project
Located on Maine’s rugged and beautiful Downeast coast, Tide Mill Farm has been in the Bell family for nine generations. Tide Mill Creamery was founded in 2010, born of a passion for the precious connections between food and place.
We take joy in crafting certified organic cheese, yogurt, and kefir in small batches in our licensed creamery right on the farm. All of our milk is produced on farm as well. Tide Mill Organic Farm’s herd of cows rotationally graze the seaside fields all summer, and our own herd of Nubian goats browse the woodland pastures around our home.
Our cheeses and yogurts are pure and simple, made the way they’ve been made for centuries. We never use additives or fillers of any kind. The cows and goats of Tide Mill Farm consume nothing but grass, whatever native flora is in season, hay, water, sunshine, and moderate amounts of grain. Their feed is free of herbicides, pesticides, antibiotics, and GMOs.
We believe in terroir, the “taste of place” that makes our products unique in all the world, inextricably tied to this one beloved saltwater farm. The thrill is that we can share this place with you—with each delightful mouthful.
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!
