APPLETON CREAMERY

And another wild week of weather challenges and selling challenges! Thank you to everyone who is coming to markets or to our farm stand to buy cheese!
With the exception of buying clubs such as Bahner Farm and the Lost Kitchen, most of our wholesale accounts have tanked, so we are very grateful for the local customer base we have grown to love and appreciate through our farmers’ market presence over the years. It has been a joy to watch all those children grown up and become the next generation of shoppers and farmers over the last 26 years. 

We now have on-line pre-ordering available for our markets and the farm stand. https://appleton-creamery2020.square.site  Never fear, though, you can still just drop us an email (appletoncreamery@gmail.com) with your desired cheese choice, or simply show up at market. Each week, we are learning more about this brave new world of farmers’ markets. So far, we can only list cheeses that are a set price (not variable). So, while we have cow and goats milk Camdenbert, they are weighed, and each one is different. We managed to cut some Havarti and some Gouda in uniform sizes to offer a few for preorder. I will still have a few smaller and larger size slices at market. We appreciate exact change and checks, can take your credit/debit cards, Apple Pay, or invoice you electronically.

Back this week is Granite Kiss! In the log shape, so we don’t have to weigh it. 

It’s breaking my heart to have to cancel on-farm events. We really missed our visitors on Sunday, when we should have been hosting our annual Kid Hugging Day. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see photos of the goats at play and the cheese maker at work. Subscribe to our farm newsletter for updates on where else you can find our cheese. Just go to our website.



These beauties were cut this week … created in January, before the world changed.

DICKEY HILL FARM

THE DICKEY HILL FARM ONLINE SEEDLING SALE BEGINS NEXT WEEK!

Our seedlings will be available in our online store beginning Monday, May 4th and continuing through the month as different varieties come into season.  Our online store will have expanded hours; Fridays at noon - Thursdays at noon to allow for easy garden planning!    Please order for the week by Thursdays at noon for Friday morning pick up at the Belfast Farmers’ Market from 9-1.  

Check out www.dickeyhillfarm.com/seedlings to see list of all the seedlings you can expect to see in our online store throughout the spring.  Please note: we grow multiple successions of many of our seedlings, which means a “sold out” label in the store could just mean sold out for that particular week.  For your planning purposes, we will keep this page updated with details on when the next succession may be available and when certain varieties truly are sold out for the season.

During our seedling sale we will be pausing and reassessing the viability of continuing our devilry route into the summer months. Online orders placed beginning May 4th will be for pick-up only at the Belfast Farmers' Market.

We anticipate a lull in our harvest over the next couple of weeks as we flip our high tunnels from winter greens to summer produce as well as continue to transplant out in the field. Any produce we do have will be added to the online store inventory Wednesday's at 8am. Our Grass Fed Beef is in full suppply and will also be available.

Thank you all for your patience and support during these times!
