Located on Maine’s rugged and beautiful Downeast coast, Tide Mill Farm has been in the Bell family for nine generations. Tide Mill Creamery was founded in 2010, born of a passion for the precious connections between food and place.
We take joy in crafting certified organic cheese, yogurt, kefir, and krauts in small batches in our licensed facilities right on the farm. All of our milk is produced on farm as well. Tide Mill Organic Farm’s herd of cows rotationally graze the seaside fields all summer, and our own herd of Nubian goats browse the woodland pastures around our home.
Our cheeses, yogurts, krauts, and sausages are pure and simple, made the way they’ve been made for centuries. We never use additives or fillers of any kind. The cows, goats, and pigs of Tide Mill Farm consume nothing but grass, leaves, hay, water, sunshine, minerals and moderate amounts of grain. Their feed is free of herbicides, pesticides, antibiotics, and GMOs.
We believe in terroir, the “taste of place” that makes our products unique in all the world, inextricably tied to this one beloved saltwater farm. The thrill is that we can share this place with you—with each delightful mouthful. Customers who choose our products can feel good knowing that they are supporting local family farming and helping to keep a vital Maine tradition alive.
