A perennial fall favorite. The Maine Cheese Guild’s Open Creamery Day is always held on the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend, when the Maine hills and valleys are vibrant with color. This is your opportunity to visit many of Maine’s cheesemakers at their farms and creameries, and interact with the milk producing animals. Creameries are open statewide and an updated map can be found here.
The Maine Cheese Guild is a group of cheese makers, cheese retailers, cheese equipment suppliers, and cheese lovers of all kinds in Maine. We began in 2003 and currently have about 80 members.
The Guild’s mission is to support and encourage the Maine cheesemaking community. We will do this through development of a collective voice to promote Maine cheese and cheesemakers, educate cheese makers and consumers, coordinate resources and share the joy and art of regional cheeses.
We meet 10 times a year at various locations, mostly at our members facilities. Maine is a big state, and this allows our meeting to be geographically accessible at least a few times of the year for all our members.
In addition we organize events and workshops and festivals for our members as well as for the cheese lovers of our state.
