Good evening All,


Memorial Day weekend, start to our summer fun , and for me, a time for reflecting on all the wonderful folks that have come in and out of my life, that have given me the gift of their time and learning, that gave without hesitation their love and honesty …. So many souls, all hard working farmers,fishermen,homesteaders,foragers,generous folks that were souls of the land and sea and offered to me many many life lessons. Some I learned easily and others……well, they might have taken me a bit longer, but those are the lessons that I remember and use greatfully. I am and have been blessed by friends gone by but also friends that I can call upon today.. thank you all.


We are headed to market this week, and we will gladly assemble your orders for you to pick up at market..our market days are Wednesday 10-1 in Falmouth and Saturday 10-1 in Cumberland . Please send me your orders at least 24 hours in advance ! Come on over to market, we have so many great vendors selling excellent produce and crafts… let’s fill up the pantry…. I know that many of you begin to welcome summer visitors , fresh local food is always in great demand…


And on another note, my former farm helper ,KC, came back to spend a bit of time with his family before diving into the world of career driven work in IT at John Hopkins university. KC is going into his junior year next year and he stopped over for a visit with us, what a great bright young fella… I miss him lots and lots, he was capable, responsible , worked hard and loved my big dog boys who practically became unglued at their delight in seeing him! Two big dogs at about 125 pound each could not get enough of his attention, and let him know how much they missed him…. Made me kinda jealous!


I have a good supply of fiddleheads and ramps, baby lettuce and spinach, we do have herb seedlings and I will get that list out to everyone in the next day or so….


Happy summer, and know that I am greatful for all of you and for your support of local foods and our fabulous small Maine farms!\

Keep on watering !

Look at our newest babies! 12 happy big goslings, surrounded and protected by their very vigilant moms and dads…. Don’t EVEN think about getting close to these precious little bundles…you will get a very stern, loud warning and a chase off from their guardians! Not many more intimidating than critters than a goose on the lookout..

The market was very busy Saturday, I will not be at Wednesday market nor Saturday this week, , the best laid plans very often go wonky . So I will make Friday delivery this week and hope to get back into the market routine for next week. I have missed all of my loyal market friends!

Fiddleheads, ramps and I might even have shiitake mushrooms available. Let me know if you’d like some, the logs are just beginning to bloom!

Always glad to hear from you all, and please let me know how I can fill your pantry with fresh local delicious foods!

Memorial Day weekend!

Woo hoo!

Hello All !


I am hoping that we all got out to enjoy this unprecedented warm stretch!

72 degrees here at the farm, just unreal……………


Our weekend project was to put a brand new “sheet” of 6 mil plastic over our new high tunnel…. We started at 7 am and finished the job by 9:30 am…. This installation needs to happen while there is little to no breeze as the slightest gust of wind would lift you off the ground, and holding onto this massive sail is almost impossible, so crack of dawn is the absolute best time to cover over our new high tunnel… Joe ( my husband) and his good friend Andrew have been putting these coverings on our high tunnels for years so they have a good working system…I run the tractor lifting them up to the peak but primarily stay out of their way, lending a hand as needed……this high tunnel will provide us with another season extending space, and I will plant in the next few weeks a perennial bed of asparagus and spread another sheet of clear older plastic over the remaining space to “solarize” the ground, hoping to rid it of weed seed in preparation for an early spring crop of greens.




We are back onto our winter ordering and delivery schedule (Wednesday order deadline and Friday delivery), and the turkey group grows everyday…. Order yours today ! We are also taking preorders for Christmas holiday hams, duck and goose…..

And as always my grateful thanks for your continued support of our farm and for fresh local foods grown by our excellent small Maine farms!

Stay well!


Ohh and yes, tomorrow is Election Day! If you have already voted , good for you! And if not, take a few moments tomorrow to vote your opinion….

honestly every single vote counts!!!!
