Good morning All !


After the refreshing and much need rain yesterday, today brilliant sunshine…. Maybe the pollen will be washed away too!


Our barn kitten babies are now looking for loving homes, indoors or out, they make great pets, and are excellent mousers too! The barn cats here at the farm are smaller than most cats, but wow can they catch mice ! I will gladly provide more photos if you are thinking about adding a bundle of energy to your household.


Greens , radishes and salad turnips and garlic scapes are available now, and the strawberries……. So super sweet !


Seedlings are in good supply and there is PLENTY of planting time to get them into the ground … let us know if you are searching for replacement tomatoes peppers or cukes, I hear that the squirrels and chipmunks have been a bit pesky this spring and have hit the gardens hard…..


We have completed the gating around the farmhouse and greenhouses so our sheep, horses and beef critters now graze around the buildings to help with grass and weed control… BUT … no bare feet around the farm please, you never know what you might step in !

As always, our grateful support for your continuing support of our local awesome small farms and crafters, all of you have helped to make our great commitment to local foods one of the great reasons to continue. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at markets!

Good Morning All!

Babies abound ! Baby chicks, soon to hatch ducklings, quail ,goslings, rabbits and KITTENS! Anyone looking for a cute little kitten? These little ones are from our barn cats . Our cats are excellent mousers, very adept at feeding themselves and quite small when full grown. While their parents are not friendly to pat, I collect their babies when just weaned and raise them in the house for a week or so to get them used to litter boxes and being held. I have 6 available right now, 2 tigers, 2 black with white splashes and 2 marmalade … let me know if you might be interested! We are coming to the end of fiddleheads and ramps, our season is rapidly marching on! I will have fresh shiitake mushrooms this week, just had a farmer call and ask if I would take his crop , so, let me know if you are interested.. $14.00 pound ! Asparagus has been so tender and tasty, and while I do not have any fresh strawberries this week, I still have frozen that would be delicious with rhubarb in pies….. Stay strong and healthy my friends and please let me know how I can continue to fill your refrigerators and freezers… whole chicken will be available this week, buy multiples for a better price!

Again as always I appreciate your commitment to local foods and our excellent small Maine farms, and out I go to plant for an hour or so this morning….. Grateful for you all...

Good Morning all!


Hope that your long holiday weekend is fabulous and that you are able to spend some quality time with friends and family!

This week at the farm, the broiler chickens (meat birds) have been moved out onto the front yard pens, our temps have reached a safe night time temperature so that we do not have to worry about them getting chilled and “piling up”. And that is literally what it means….being a fast growing bird, if they get a bit chilly, they do not have adequate feather coverage to help keep themselves warm and they pile up on each other, suffocating and smothering those most unfortunate to be in the bottoms…. And speaking of which…… we will have 4-5 pound meat chickens available to fill your freezer in the next 2 weeks… if you preorder 5 or more of these birds I will drop the price per pound to $4.50 a pound, feel free to message or email me if you have any questions, I would be glad to arrange a bundle for you ! And we will let a good portion of these birds grow to a larger size 6-8 pounds, I know that some of you want a larger bird, again, please let me know so that we can reserve some for you….


And, I was out last night watching the sun go down with my big lovely furry puppy boys and we spied fireflies dancing in the tall grass in the fields! We used to catch them as little kids and hold them in our hands and watch their little bodies blink off and on…. We could not bring them into the house though , my mom had no tolerance for insects good or bad in the farm house or for that matter pollywogs or little turtles , sigh….

So , I look forward to hearing from you all, a great big thanks to those that picked up orders at market last week, so great to see you !

We will have a good supply of rhubarb and asparagus this week, the fiddlehead and ramp season is beginning to close down, so order those up now, while I still have some supply….

Again, I appreciate your commitment to local foods and our excellent small Maine farms, I am beyond grateful …..
