Meeting: Oct 5 in Edmunds at Tide Mill Creamery

Our next meeting will take place almost as far east as you can travel in the continental US: Edmunds, ME on the shores of Cobbscook Bay at Tide Mill Creamery. Cheese maker Rachel Bell recently won her first ACS award and would like to explore the idea of cooperative marketing of cheeses through the Guild at this meeting.

Rachel writes: “We are the last driveway on Tide Mill Rd. You can turn into the main entrance to Tide Mill Farm and drive through the farm and around the dairy barn and on for awhile to get to us (the last driveway on the right before reaching Rt. 1 again) or you can turn right into the second entrance of Tide Mill Rd. and we are the first left. There is a Tide Mill Creamery sign hanging on a rock at our entrance.”
