The Midcoast Cheese Trail will kick off its season with the third annual Kid Hugging Day April 22 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Appleton Creamery in Appleton, Copper Tail Farm in Waldoboro, and Fuzzy Udder Creamery in Whitefield invite the public  to stop by the farms to meet and cuddle baby goats, sample the first goat cheeses of the season, and learn about goats and sheep and how cheese is made. Their farm stands will be opening that day.

Appleton Creamery will be joined by the YumBus, offering tacos and crepes, and Stone Fox Creamery ice cream. Fuzzy Udder Creamery will be offering hot chocolate made with goat's milk, and sheep’s milk truffles. Copper Tail Farm will feature Good Shepherd Breads and Turtle Rock Preserves.

The Midcoast Cheese Trail was formed in 2016 to encourage people to visit local farms where cheese is made. It has now expanded to include six farms in the Midcoast. For more information, visit
