Mouthwatering Cheese, Milk & Yogurt...Fresh from the Appleton Farms Weekly Dairy Shares: New This Winter!

FARM TO FRIDGE DAIRY SHARE

This winter, warm up to a smorgasbord of handcrafted, delicious, and nutritious milk, cheese, and yogurt, fresh from Appleton Farms – all part of a winter dairy share program we’re launching. It works this way: you pay a flat price at the beginning of the season, then visit the farm weekly to pick up your choice of milk, yogurt, and cheese. (It’s like our veggie CSA, but for dairy.)
 
Picture a cozy season of gooey grilled cheese, artisan pizza, warm oatmeal with the freshest-of-fresh milk…Mmmmm, are you hungry yet?

ABOUT OUR DAIRY PRODUCTS

MILK
Our milk is bottled using low-temperature pasteurization at Puleo’s Dairy in Salem, MA. The lower temperature helps preserve the “good” bacteria found in our grass-based milk. We offer skim, 1%, and whole milk.

YOGURT
Our yogurt starts with fresh whole milk from Jersey cows. We add a mix of yogurt cultures – that’s it – no additives, stabilizers, or sugars.

CHEESE SELECTIONS
Sunset Hill Triple Cream: A silky-smooth brie-style cheese with a snow-white bloomy rind, this cheese oozes flavor. It is sweet and buttery when young, sharp and peppery with age.
Pinnacle: The “pinnacle” of our cheeses, this mild & smooth-bodied tomme-style cheese with its rustic edible rind is named after the granite spires or “pinnacles” located throughout the farm in memoriam to Appleton family members.
The Colonel: A young asiago-style cheese with piquant or peppery notes, this signature cheese is named after Frank Appleton – a colonel in WWI.
Blazing Blue: Named after a rare wildflower found at the farm, this special blue cheese has sharp and salty notes and “blazing blue” color. Balance the flavor with a bold red wine and sweet apples.
