The Maine Cheese Guild Presents Open Creamery Day 2013

MONROE, Maine – As the hardwood foliage bursts in a blaze of colors on Columbus Day weekend, take in the spectacular sights and taste some award-winning cheese during the Maine Cheese Guild's annual Open Creamery Day. Visit many of Maine's cheese makers in their creameries, meet the animals, and learn the stories behind Maine's more than 150 artisan cheeses. Along the way you can also visit a farmers' market, stop at an orchard, explore one of Maine's premier breweries or wineries, pick fruit at Maine's legendary orchards, and drop-in on one of the many artisan bread makers our state has to offer. You'll love the views, and the taste of Maine cheese, straight from the source, will be the best memory of all!
