Pineland Farms...

We are expecting more snow today....lots. But before it started to fall, my husband and I took a drive to Pineland Farms in New Gloucester.

We mostly were going to check out the market, as I had recently heard that have added their own cheese, crafted right there on the farm, to the selection of foods offered. They had about 6 different cheese out to try, all very tasty. We especially enjoyed the smoked cheddar.

Here is the write up on their Market Page:

Introducing The Market at Pineland Farms!
The Market at Pineland Farms combines all the farm-fresh goodness of our farm stand with an expanded assortment of Maine-made foods, beverages, and gifts - all under one roof.
You'll find a full assortment of delicious cheeses from our Creamery, organic eggs from hens right here on the farm, and our own jams, honey, and pickles. The Market will be bursting all summer long with locally grown vegetables and fruits. We also feature a great selection of premium-quality, Wolfe's Neck Natural Meats.

What a beautiful and picturesque place. I even ran into my friend Beth. She and her son had just finished up cross country skiing. He was enjoying a locally made
Lemon Lime Soda by Capt'n Eli's Soda.

Lunch is available, and many were partaking in homemade sandwiches and delicious looking deserts. I looked more than once at the pie's for sale, thinking of buying one, but my husband asked me to bake him one of mine instead. What a guy!

We will be sure to go back and enjoy the many recreational opportunities including trail running, walking. hiking, mountain biking, tennis, Nordic skiing, and ice skating.
