Good evening folks. Hard but inevitable page update. My mom passed away on Saturday after her unexpected illness that we have been dealing with. Thank you to everyone for your patience, understanding and very kind words during this time. I am beyond grateful to have been able to spend these last weeks just concentrating on my mom and her care. The long road of healing has begun. I am planning a delivery of bread to 4 Corners Shop and Save and Dunbars Market this Thursday 9/8/22. I am going to start back slowly. I will be available for meat sales at the farm store by appointment or by chance for the next few weeks. After our hay season is done I will open the farm store on a more consistent schedule through the holidays. Thank you again to everyone who reached out with kind words and support. Your are a truly amazing community!!

Hi folks! Quick update. I was able to bake and deliver to 4 Corners Shop & Save as well as Dunbars yesterday. I have stopped delivering to Acadia Provisions and Emery's, at least for the foreseeable future. At this time, cutting back allows me to still bake and be close by for my mother. Still lots to figure out, but I will stay as consistent as possible with deliveries for these two stores. I will keep any baking and delivery updates posted here. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Good morning everyone. Another update. Trying not to give gory details, my mother has been very sick over the past few weeks. The doctors suspect and internal bleed which is causing severe anemia. They have not been able to find it, but we hope this week we will start finding some solid answers. That being said, I am going to be closed this week also. I will keep you updated here on a date I will be able to open and start delivering again. Thank you for your patience and all the words of support. I look forward to being back at work as soon as my mom is back on her feet. I'll see you out and about soon!!! ☀️☀️☀️☀️

Good morning. Due to multiple unexpected appointments for my mother I am unable to bake this week. There will be no deliveries this Thursday 7/14/22. I'm looking for our next delivery to be on 7/21/22. At this time I still plan on being at the farm store this Saturday 7/16/22 from 10am - 3pm. I will keep you posted with any changes. Enjoy the sunshine and try to stay cool in the hot summer weather.

Good evening everyone. We finally have meat back in our freezers. I am working on stocking the farm store this week and will be open again this Saturday from 10am -3pm for meat sales. I am including our updated spring/summer 2022 price list. As expected we have had to increase our prices to meet the cost of butchering and transport. I look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday. Stay warm!!!

I'm baking the night away getting ready for the farm store tomorrow. I will have blueberry scones and blueberry cobbler among many other goodies available. It's the first annual Wild Maine Blueberry Weekend for the State of Maine. What a great weekend to explore all things blueberry while the harvest is in full swing around the state. I will be at the farm store from 10am - 3pm. Hope to see you out and about.

Good morning!!! I'm getting a late start with deliveries today. I've been wrangling some wayward cows this morning. No matter. I'm heading out now. Might see you out and about on the delivery route. 😁

Golly!!!! I'm just realizing as I am finishing up baking for tomorrow's deliveries that next week is the 4th of July and the bakery will be closed for vacation next week. Not really vacation. The hubs needs my help in the hay fields. Time does sneak up on me. I will deliver tomorrow. The next delivery is scheduled for July 15, 2021. I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July holiday. I will still be at the farm store every Saturday 10am -3pm through July.

Baking, baking and baking. I will have anadama bread (among other baked goods) at the farm store tomorrow. Many people have been asking when I would get the anadama back in production. I will be at the farm store from 10am - 3pm on Saturday. Hope to see you out and about!!!

Good evening folks!!!! Guess what! I had my inspection this afternoon and received my new license!!!! Back in business!!! I will be making a delivery on April 15th to 4 Corners Shop & Save, Dunbar's Store, Acadia Provisions and Emery's Meat & Produce. I had to drop a couple markets this year due to my increased responsibility at the farm. I will not be delivering to Bayside Shop & Save or to Winter Harbor Food Service this summer, but I will continue to have baked goods at our farm store on Saturdays. Thank you all for your patience and understanding. I'm really looking forward to getting back to work and a busy market season. See you out and about!!!

Good evening everyone!!! Quick update of what I know so far. The commercial kitchen is finished and fully functioning. It's an awesome work space. I'm still waiting on licensing. I spoke with my inspector and he knows all my paperwork is at the main office in Augusta. He is just waiting on them to issue me a new license number so he can come for a site inspection. I was hoping that would happen this week, but that was not the case. Here is hoping for next week. In the meantime I am putting the kitchen to work so I can keep in good practice. At least my friends and family can benefit. Tonight's workout was ciabatta, brioche and naan (no pic because we ate the naan for dinner). Thank you all for your patience. This is taking longer than we had ever expected.

I will still be at the farm store tomorrow 10am - 3pm with our grass fed beef and local farm fresh eggs as well as Swamp Yankee BBQ products. I'll get baked goods back as soon as I am legal!! 😁

Good evening everyone. What a whirlwind the last couple of weeks have been. Not as hoped, but also not unexpected, things are taking longer than we were hoping. I am still waiting on a few services to be connected and I am also waiting to hear from the licensing office for inspection. We are most likely looking at reopening closer to the end of March. I will be reaching out to the stores I sell at to see how they want to handle my absence. I will keep you all posted with updates as they happen. On the upside, the new commercial kitchen is beautiful and I can not wait to get to work in it!!! I will be opening the farm store again starting this Saturday 3/6/2021 for meat sales and local gifts. I hope everyone is doing well. Think spring!

02/06/2021

Ok folks!!!! It's happening!!! The closing date on our house is February 26th. The new commercial kitchen is being built at the farm and we are gearing up for the big move. The last day for my bread deliveries will be February 11, 2021. I will then close the kitchen for a couple weeks to get everything finished, equipment moved and inspection/licensing done. My plan is to be back in business for deliveries to resume on March 4, 2021. If things happen quickly I will open earlier. If things take a little longer I will keep you updated on Facebook. Right now the plan is to keep the farm store open for regular hours on Saturdays through the moving process, just lacking Grey Lady Products. It will be a few very stressful weeks, but I'm excited we will be on the farm full time for spring!!! 🌞🎉🌞🎉🌞
