Sponsored by the Maine Cheese Guild, Open Creamery day (always held on the Sunday of Indigenous Peoples weekend) is a great day for visiting the farms, barns, and animals that make that wonderful artisan cheese of Maine.
Kennebec Cheesery is an especially lovely place with incomparable views of Messalonskee Lake and one of the few working farms on Pond Road. All of their cheeses are produced by hand, with the help of some modern equipment such as their in-line milking parlor, bulk tank, and cheese making vats. You will get to see the facilities and also meet the lovely animals, too.
If you have taken our Cheese Making class with Jean in the past, this is your opportunity to see her farm and friendly Alpine /Saanen goats. If you haven’t taken her class, this is your chance to get acquainted and learn about the handcrafted cheese making process.
(Do check the website for last minute changes before leaving home at https://kennebechessery.com.) COVID protocols will be in place. No student limit.
