Nestled in the heart of Mid-Coast Maine, State of Maine Cheese Company is a small business that has been handcrafting fine cheeses since 1983.
Since we started creating cheese in Maine over 30 years ago, we have cherished our partnership with our dairy farmers. Our relationship with Oakhurst Dairy allows us to hand pick the farms we receive milk from, principally from Springdale Jerseys in Waldo, Maine, a four generation farm with 400 Jersey and Guernsey cows that produce the picture perfect milk for making cheese. We are also organically certified and work with Maine organic farmers directly.
We are the home of the Rockport Marketplace where we carry many fine products made right here in Maine and beyond. On days that we are making cheese, customers can watch our cheesemaker at work making cheese in our production room.
We also offer tours of our production area, but we ask that you please call ahead to arrange a time first.
Our Summer retail store hours are 9 am – 6 pm, Monday – Saturday and Sunday, Noon – 4pm (after Memorial Day).
