Winter Hill Farm is the only working dairy and certified creamery in Freeport. We milk a very rare breed of cattle- the Randalls, which were once found on many homesteads and farms throughout New England. We are currently one of the only dairies in the world to milk this breed commercially. Come meet the cows, see where and how they are milked, and walk through our creamery where we make small batches of artisanal cheeses and yogurt. Tours will start every half hour, starting at 2 pm. We will be offering some samples and have cheeses for sale as well.
