New Gloucester Cheese

April 2024 brings an exciting highlight to The Market at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine, as they feature the exquisite “New Gloucester” cheese, a distinguished Gold Medal winner at the American Cheese Society (ACS) Judging and Competition. This month-long feature will not only showcase this Cotswold-style cheese but also offers it at a special spring sale price all month long!

New Gloucester: A Culinary Heritage Reborn

“New Gloucester” cheese draws its inspiration from a historic Double Gloucester recipe, a testament to over 200 years of English village culinary tradition. This ACS Gold Medal-winning cheese is a modern take on the Cotswold-style, enriched with a savory blend of onions and garlic, showcasing nearly two decades of cheesemaking expertise at the Pineland Farms Dairy Company. It is named after the original home of the dairy company and the location of our Market, farm, and campus here in New Gloucester, Maine.
