Sure signs of spring and Easter Dinner
In spite of the recent snow, there certainly are sure signs of spring. Most recently, the 3 lambs that were born here this week! Now, that's a sure sign of spring on the farm. The first sight of robins, blue birds, kill deer, red-winged blackbirds, and Canadian geese flying over head are welcome after a long, cold, snowy winter. In our area, the deer begin to break up from their winter yards and we see large herds of them in our fields. They're a pleasure to watch. One of the notable events in spring is what we call, spring foliage. This is when the buds and first leaves of the trees emerge and offer a beautiful and delicate hue across the valley. We love to see the red maples, the lime green of the poplars, and the mushroom pink of the yellow birches. It really is a wonderful time of year.
For the first time, we will be offering an Easter Dinner at 1:30 p.m. on Easter Sunday. The menu includes our own Blue Ribbon Farm roast lamb and Easter Seafood Pie with shrimp, haddock & lobster, a traditional Italian recipe. In addition to our Easter offering, we have two other Saturday night evenings with a few tables still open and they are this coming Saturday, the 13th, and April 27th.
Starting May 4th, we are open every Saturday through New Year's Eve. This is our 4th year and we thank you for your support. We continue to enjoy meeting new people and old friends, and supporting Maine agriculture in a fine dining tradition.

We have been farming since 1976 and growing our own food has been the focus of all our farming ventures. We have seen many evolutions since the early years, from raising a nationally recognized flock of sheep, running a small dairy, growing vegetables in high-tunnel greenhouses, expanding the vegetable production to several acres, building a commercial fresh pasta business to our present day venture at 122 Corson. The constant within the evolution is growing and producing what we eat.
