The vegetables purchased from our farm stand are only a day or two out of the ground. Many items are harvested the morning of market! When you purchase our food for your family you receive the benefit of vibrant, healthy, and extremely fresh food. We pride ourselves in thoroughly washing all our vegetables so they are beautiful and clean making them great for snacking on the car ride home! There is an eye-catching benefit to visiting our farm stand as well with all the beautiful, deep, and intense colors to the vegetables we offer.
The benefit of having a dairy at our farm is that we make compost and fertilizer for our gardens with manure, hay, and bedding from our own farm. All the inputs for our compost are certified organic and directly from our own cows. We purchase certified organic potting soil for our seedlings from Living Acres in New Sharon, Maine. Again, by supporting our farm consumers are also supporting other local businesses.
Catering companies, health food stores, daycares, and other institutions can purchase our delicious and fresh organic vegetables at wholesale prices. This is a great benefit for anyone interested in serving our vegetables to larger groups of people.
We sell vegetables at three farmer’s markets across Central Maine. You can find us with vegetables at the Farmers’ Market at Mill Park in Augusta, the Wednesday and Saturday Skowhegan Farmers’ markets, and in the fall and winter at the Orono Farmers’ Market. Our vegetables are available from May through February at the farm as well.
