We grow tens of thousands of seedlings for sale and for use in our own farm fields. These are not your run of the mill, dropped at the big box store, baked in a parking lot all day (sad and stressed!) seedlings. They are big and robust, dark green, well-rooted, carefully tended and seriously ready for the get-go.
The great thing about the varieties we grow and sell to gardeners in our community is. . .they are OUR favorite varieties!! We consider them the best choices for production and reliability for Midcoast Maine. In 2015, we expanded our heated growing space to a 32x96ft greenhouse. It is our goal to heat this space with as much farm grown fuel (firewood) as possible. Redundancy is the name of the game when it comes to ensuring that those little plant babies will stay warm enough, so we are going to team the wood-fired boiler with some bench heat and a backup propane blower.
