Farm Nisse-Friday December 12th from 4-6pm

Appleton Farms has its own "Nisse"- an elf-like creature who lives in our barn and protects our farmers, animals and crops.  Each holiday season our Farm Nisse appears for his special porridge. Join us as we kindly thank our Nisse for bringing luck to the farm, offer him porridge, and listen to his tales of mischief!  Share in holiday goodies, crafts, and caroling in our carriage barn.

Looking for the perfect gift? Look no more! New this holiday season at Appleton Farms: a Holiday Cheese Sampler, fresh from our farm.
The Cheese Sampler includes wedges of Sunset Hill Triple Cream, Pinnacle, and Broad Meadow cheeses. Hand-packaged with care and presented in rustic, wood boxes crowned with a signature Appleton label and cheese descriptions. The Holiday Cheese Sampler makes a perfect holiday present. Have one on hand as a hostess gift or for impromptu festivities at your own house. The cost for the Holiday Cheese Sampler is $50.
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; bold and peppery with age.
The “pinnacle” of our cheeses, this semi-hard cheese has a pleasant, grassy tang. A classic farmhouse table, tomme-style cheese. You can really taste the lush grass that our Jersey cows feed on. Fun fact: it's named after the granite spires or “pinnacles” located throughout the farm in memoriam to Appleton family members. Aged 3 months.
Broad Meadow
Earthy, nutty, smooth, and semi-hard can best describe this signature cheese that has become a farm favorite. This cheese is named for the expanse of fields rich with seasonal butterflies and grassland birds that welcome you onto our 1000-acre farm. Aged 6 months.
