We are a small diversified family farm , home to Registered Black Angus Beef cattle and Golden Guernsey Dairy Cattle.
We retail at the farm and feature our creamline milk yogurt and fresh and aged cheeses.
Visitors welcome by appointment.
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.
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.
Certified Organic Dairy Products produced for your family, by our family.

Josh and Amy Clark are third generation farmers, first generation cheese makers. They craft
unique farmstead cheese with their herd of registered Jerseys on the banks of the Kennebec River
At a few local farmers’ markets this season, Amy & Josh will be offering a different variety of their signature aged Gouda-style cheese – red pepper, rosemary, herbs de provence, and a savory wood-fired favorite. They will also be selling whole milk Ricotta in traditional (and returnable) cheese tins and baskets, as well as their own rendition of Ricotta Salata – a pressed Ricotta with fresh herbs, good for baking, eating on a cracker, or by the spoonful. To mix it up, Crooked Face Creamery will also occasionally offer small batches of other dairy products and fresh cheeses including, farmhouse butter, yogurt, and the occasional specialty spread.

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.
The Associated Press reports on the possible demise of an ancient cheese from Alpine France: the Persillé de Tignes is now being made by the last of what used to be dozens of family cheesemakers in the Savoie village of La Savinaz. As these older varieties of cheese fade away, will newer versions take their place in the kaleidoscope of dairy flavors? Or will we forever lose a unique example of “milk’s leap toward immortality”?

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.
