DESCRIPTION: Beautiful and tasty farm produce, raised with sustainable environmentally sensitive farming methods on a quiet Maine hilltop farm Your satisfaction is always 100% guaranteed. Our aim: "Highest Quality and Huge Variety."
OUR FARM PRODUCTS: We offer vegetables (including many heirlooms), culinary herbs (including 6 types of basil alone), CYO flowers; also flower, vegetable and herb seedlings, as well as hanging baskets, deck and dock planters, potted annuals and perennials. CSA members can also use their share balances for personal consultations at their own garden locations on soil improvement, planting systems, pruning strategies and more.
Contact us for 2013 planting plans.
OUR CSA: We offer a small number of shares. Members benefit from knowing they are helping to preserve a family-owned source for farm products and can choose from a wide range of superior quality products produced with environmentally responsible methods, all while saving money. The farm benefits from having a source of income early in the season and does not need to borrow money for annual seed, compost and other supplies.
MEMBERSHIPS: Our 'free choice' shares begin at $150 with the option to add $50 increments during the season. Members shop from their pre-paid balance and receive a 10% membership premium (15% for memberships paid in full by January 20 each year) on all farm products: plants, vegetables, PYO raspberries, PYO flowers.
Our season will run for about 24 weeks beginning late April/early May. If any share portions are unused by the end of the farm season, the unused portion may be applied to bring next year's membership up to at least the minimum balance.
