Come join us tomorrow from 10am to 3pm as we celebrate Maine Open Farm Day. Come tour the sugarhouse, pickup some fresh raspberries we just picked this evening, cool off when a cup of our local fruit sorbet (strawberry mint, blueberry lime and cherry) made here on the farm from our fruit which is grown using organic practices, pick-your-own blueberries or grab a bottle of our very popular Bourbon barrel infused maple syrup while supplies last!! We are only a 10 minute drive from the Springvale Farm Walk! Hope to see you tomorrow!!
Please join us this Saturday from 1-4 as our farm store will be open for the first time this growing season! Will will have our organically raised strawberries, homemade strawberry sorbet made from our berries, maple products, free range eggs etc. Hope to see this weekend!
Spring has finally arrived on the farm…peaches, apples, strawberries etc are all in bloom which makes this time of year great to visit the farm. Our Vanilla bean and Cinnamon infused maple syrups are back in stock (look for our Bourbon barrel syrup in a few more weeks). Our hens have been busily ranging about the farm and are making lots of free range, organic fed eggs. Please call or send us a message to arrange a time to come by and pick up some farm products!
Nobody said making maple syrup was glamorous :) We were both soaked by the end of the day but we are fully tapped out and the sap if running (finally!) . We will be open for our 1st open house of the season this coming Sunday March 17th from 1-4p. Visitors are encouraged to participate in the process of making syrup (if interested) and the sugarhouse store will be open with fresh syrup and other maple goodies to satisfy your sweet tooth :)
We have begun tapping in anticipation that the 2019 maple season will begin later this week based on current weather predictions. February has been below average temperature wise and as such the maple season has been delayed some but the weather looks promising for the rest of the month. Stay tuned for updates on open house dates/times as well as more information on our new maple syrup making classes held here at the farm.
As we busily prepare for the coming of winter we stopped for a moment this past weekend to wonder at the beauty Fall even as it nears its end.
Spent part of a day with our friends Aaron and Laura at Our Farm in Springvale, Maine to help with their potato harvest. Several months ago Aaron had stopped by and casually asked about our antique potato harvester and whether we would consider letting him try to make it operational again. We loved the idea of this nearly 100 year old farm tool being given another chance to work as it was designed. While this old girl is OSHA’s worst nightmare…after a little trial and error we had potatoes bouncing down the conveyor! Much fun was had by all and I am already looking forward to next year’s harvest!
New product alert...we are now offering fresh, local fruit sorbet with fruit sourced from our farm and surrounding farms! Our goal is to offer sorbet made from fruit sourced from within about 15 miles of our farm. This weeks offerings are blueberry/lime and blackberry/plum with the blueberries/backberries sourced from here and Shiro plums from Foxes Ridge Farm in Acton. We will be open for pick your own blueberries this Saturday from 11-3 and will have sorbet for sale as well. In addition, we will be at the Kittery farmer's market this Sunday and will have fresh berries, maple products and sorbet for sale. Hope to see you this weekend!
