We are a small family owned "barn yard" farm in central Maine. Located in Skowhegan on 12 acres of land since 1999. Our love of animals inspired us to start a small farm on our property. It has been a great learning opportunity for us. We pride ourselves in raising our own meat for our family as well our customers. We raise our own beef, pork, chicken but we specialize in New Zealand white Rabbits and Muscovy Ducks for meat. We have our own processing facility on site at the farm and are licensed by state of Maine. Try something different that is healthy and delicious!
Also we believe in recycling and making a conscious effort to reduce and reuse any materials at the farm. Tess's Totes by Tessier's Farm offers a variety of recycled tote bags made from feed bags. They make a unique gift for that special someone and is a big help to the earth! Support your local farmer's market! See you there!

Josh and Amy Clark are third generation farmers, first generation cheese makers. They craft unique farmstead cheese with their herd of Jerseys. Jersey cows are a special breed. Their milk, naturally high in butterfat and protein, combined with a diet of organic forage and a rotational grazing program, give Crooked Face Creamery cheese an authentic rich flavor.

Each week this season, Amy & Josh will be offering a different variety of their signature aged Gouda-style cheese - red pepper, rosemary, herbs de provence, and a savory wood-fired favorite. They will also be selling whole milk ricotta in traditional (and returnable) cheese tins, as well as their own rendition of ricotta salata - a pressed ricotta with fresh herbs, good for baking, eating on a cracker, or by the spoonful.
