Sanitation Tour at Balfour Farm

Date: April 23, 2024

Time: 10:00am to 12pm

Location:  Balfour Farm, 461 Webb Rd, Pittsfield, ME

Farm phone: 207-213-3159

General directions:

From I-95, take Exit 150 to Somerset Ave in Pittsfield.  Turn left onto Crawford Rd (<1 mile from I-95) and then turn right onto the Webb Rd (1 mile).  Balfour Farm is set back from the Webb Rd on the right. 

Renee Blais, Beth Calder, and Heather Donahue will be providing a sanitation walking tour through Balfour Farm.  This tour is an informal educational opportunity to allow cheesemakers to have a conversation with Renee and Beth, ask questions, and Renee can provide guidance on what she is looking for during a typical creamery inspection.  Heather will also be providing a tour of her farm.  Please wear clean, but comfortable footwear.

It is $10 for Maine Cheese Guild Members and $20 for non-members.  We are capping at 12 people due to space constraints.   Any additional questions about the tour, please contact Beth Calder at 207-581-2791 or or Heather Donahue at 207-213-3159 or

Special thanks to Heather for providing her creamery as a location for this educational opportunity.
