Got Milk? Now you can get your fresh milk from the farm's herd on Saturdays at Appleton Farms in Ipswich. Actually, it's a great excuse to brign the kids to explore Appleton Farms, then stop by the Dairy Market before you head home! The new hours round out a weekly schedule:
- Monday, Wednesday and Thursday 2-6
- Tuesday & Friday 11-6
- Saturday 11-3
The Market is a great resource for not only milk! they offer grass-fed beef, eggs, and other specialty and seasonal items. "Appleton Farms is one of the North Shore’s treasures, offering something for everyone – local foods, history and culture, public programs for all ages, special events and scenic trails," said Farm Director David Beardsley. "The expanded hours in the dairy store is just another reason to get out and explore the 1,000-acre working farm."
Your Saturday visit doesn’t need to end at the dairy store. Appleton Farms’ newly remodeled LEED-certified Old House Visitor Center is open to the public Saturdays from 1–4pm. With a docent on-site, visitors can see firsthand how the Appleton family lived in the family museum room, discover what makes the house “green,” see our state-of-the-art industrial kitchen, and learn more about the prized dairy herd. The Old House, central to the 1,000-acre farm, offers easy access to more than 12 miles of maintained trails through woodlands and along pastures.
