Farm Store

Our Farm Store is open 7 days a week, generally from 7am-7pm. At the store you can purchase our own raw milk, cheese, beef and pork.

Our farm store, located at 1255 Oblong Rd in Williamstown, MA, is self-serve and on the honor system.  This means that there are no Cricket Creek employees in the store selling our wares. We have trust in our community that our system will be respected and that our customers will honor themselves, our farm, and our hard work and leave the correct payment for their goods. We accept all major credit cards through our Square system. Personal check and cash are also accepted. Detailed instructions are located at the checkout station.

If you need assistance in the farm store, there are a few places you can check for help.  Walk down the hall and there are often cheese makers in the creamery.  You can look through the large windows and if you see anyone in there, indicate to them that you need assistance.  Further down the hall there is a door on your left, if you go through that door and down the steps you will find yourself in the farm office.  There may be someone in there who can help you. If you don’t see anyone around the farm building, there may be a farmer outside who can assist you. It is possible that you will stop by and not see anyone around because we are all out working.  You should still feel free to walk around the farm and shop in the farm store.

Appalachian Naturals Condiments and Dressings

Glass Milk Bottles

In early 2012 we began carrying our milk in glass bottles in addition to the plastic.  A $3 bottle deposit is included in the purchase price.  If you would like to return the bottle after drinking your milk, you can redeem a $3 discount on your next purchase. Here’s how:

  • Leave your clean, empty glass bottle under the table to the left of the milk refrigerator.
  • Upon checkout, navigate to the “discounts” screen and select the appropriate discount, depending on the number of bottles you are returning.
  • The discount will be applied to your total purchase price.

Please do not take cash from the cash box.

Glass Milk Bottles

If you do return a bottle, please be sure to return the bottle empty and clean.  We re-use these bottles, and while we wash them all between uses, we wash them by hand and it is much easier on us if they come back clean.  If you have any questions about how the deposit system works, please ask a Cricket Creek employee.  We would be more than happy to show you the ropes!
