Grown fresh in Jay, Maine.
Founded in 2017, our first season saw the cultivation of nearly 1 ton of organic tomatoes, and just under 1/2 ton of wild Maine blueberries. We also planted apple trees, beans, beets, carrots, onions, peas, pumpkins, squash, sunflowers, sweet corn, and various herbs.
In 2018 we began infrastructure improvements, clearing additional pasture, reclaiming blueberry fields and boarding our first horse. This past season (2019) included our first retail farm stand, pumpkin patch, and lots of veggies.
We're looking forward to another busy season in 2020, tackling long-deffered maintenance and major long-term infrastructure projects. Stay tuned, sign up for our newsletter, and come visit us!
