We find inspiration in the long resilient history of our forebearers working the land. We focus on bringing high quality, just-harvested, beautiful food to market.

Crooked Face Creamery

Amy Rowbottom
552 River Road
Norridgewock, ME 04957
(207) 858-5096
orders@crookedfacecreamery.com
www.crookedfacecreamery.com

Eight years ago, some may say it started out with a Crooked Face cow. Though truly, the devotion to cheese craftsmanship, to local dairy farms, and to giving back to the community began shortly after Amy Rowbottom was born to a milk making family in Norridgewock, ME. Raised with the steadfast work ethic and deep gratitude that comes from dairy farming, Amy might have spent some time away but her family heritage was quick to call her back up North. That’s where the herd with the funny-faced Jersey cow came in, and the thoughtful (though wholly unexpected) process of perfecting a line of whole milk cheeses took hold.

Amy is now hard at work creating a unique mix of award winning cheeses and sells them at farmers’ markets, specialty shops, bakeries and farm to table restaurants across the state. All cheeses are handcrafted with high quality local whole Jersey milk, no preservatives, and limited ingredients, and often specially cold-smoked, for the creamiest, richest flavor and texture. It’s Amy’s way of giving back—to her local farmer friends and her hometown community—in the very best way she knows: really, really good cheese.

Crooked Face Creamery also offers Grass Fed Angus Beef, including burger, stew meat, hearty soup bones, roasts, short ribs, steak tips, Ribeye, T-Bone, Porterhouse, Filet Mignon, NY Sirloin, and other specialty cuts upon request.

David Keithan's Egg Farm

237 James Rd.
Cornville, ME 04976
 

We are a small family farm located in Cornville. We will be selling fresh eggs and meat birds at the Skowhegan Farmers' Market. We opened the farm up in November 2017. I have been working with chickens since I was a young child. I had all types of breeds but as I gained wisdom I narrowed it down to one breed. Lakenvelder. They are a heritage breed that would much rather forage for their food then eat grain. I was stationed in Germany where I found two awesome mentors who taught me everything about Lakenvelders. Both farmers and breeders of heritage Lakenvelder. I purchase my grain fresh from Feed Commodities out of Detroit Maine. I then ferment the grain for 4 days to give the chickens a full dose of probiotics and 100% digestible nutrients. The rest is up to the hens. They have 19 acres of grass, bugs and nutrient filled soil to range on. In addition to Lakenvelders I do have some mixed layers, ducks and geese.  In the future I would sell duck/geese eggs as well as meat if customers are interested. I do not have my setup ready to raise meat chickens such as broilers yet but do have a dual purpose breed (Augsburger) that dresses out at 4-6 pounds. Should have some ready end of summer.  I am a firm believer in making sure all my animals are afforded the best life even if they will be food. Correct space and freedom are very important.
