The cows at the Misty Meadow Farm produce 10 gallons of milk each day! With about 700 “milkers,” that is a lot of milk! That could be used to produce over 3,000 pounds of cheese daily. See where the cheese for your pizza, and the ice cream, and the yogurt, and many other dairy products come from.
Maine Farm Days, to take place on August 21 – 22, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., is an Agricultural Trade Show held on a working farm. Open to the public. Admission is free. Farm Days, Inc. joins the host families, John and Belinda Stoughton and Tom and Kimberly Wright in addition to others in order to sponsor this agricultural exhibition. The Stoughton family opens their farm up to the public but they do not stop farming. You have a chance to see how it works. They just allow the public to come in and join the operation and see what is involved in the operation of a large dairy farm. If you joined them in previous years, come and see the changes.
There will be baking contests, a children’s tent, prize drawings, classes about pesticides and pests, vendors displaying equipment and products in addition to many people and groups in attendance set up to answer questions. There are two large tents for vendors and one devoted as a children’s tent. other tents for workshops.
It is approximately a thousand-acre operation that milks over 700 cows, producing approximately two million gallons of milk annually. Come and visit all aspects of a working dairy farm in central Maine. Take advantage of the Stoughton family’s willingness to open up their entire farming operation to the public.
