Certified Organic. Free Choice CSA
In 1991, our family started a unique Community Supported Agriculture model that gives members the flexibility to choose what you want, when you want from any of our five farmers’ markets or at our home farm stand. With CSA, farmers and families work together by trading a season’s worth of farm-raised food in exchange for help with startup expenses in the spring. Farm shares are sold and shareholders have free choice of what our farm produces from May through Thanksgiving. Our diverse array of certified organic vegetables, chickens, and strawberries, as well as local products like berries, eggs, cider, cheese, and locally raised meats are available at our farm stand. You can also come to any of our summer markets in Bath, Boothbay, Damariscotta, and Portland to redeem your credit. There is no deadline to join the summer CSA, but those who sign up before June 1st receive a discount.
For 25 weeks, select from a variety of fresh, in-season organic produce, berries, and other fruit, fresh flower bouquets, herbs, and maple syrup. You can also use your farm share to purchase other locally sourced products we carry, including cheeses, honey, baked goods, fresh eggs, dried beans, preserves, and our farm raised chicken and pork.
