*****We are offering something new this year......a CSA that we call our "Farmer's Club". Here is the info that is on the application....
 
"Our Farmer’s Club is a type of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) where club members buy shares
that pre-pay for their produce before the season begins. CSA’s help farms by providing income during the time when expenses are high and income is low.
 
Members in the Farmer’s Club benefit by receiving a 10% early bird sign-on bonus and become eligible for members-only “specials” during the season.
 
The deadline for the pre-season sign-on bonus is May 31st.
You can join the club after May 31st, but you will not be eligible for the pre-season bonus.
 
You will be given a Farmer’s Club card at your first visit of the season to the farm stand. The card will be pre-loaded with your share amount. When you use your card to make purchases, the amount is deducted from your balance. You will be given a receipt with your remaining total when you check out.
You can add more onto your card at any time. However, the pre-season sign-on bonus is only offered for funds received before May 31st.
 
Farmer’s Club specials will change as various crops peak throughout the season.
Everything we sell at our farmstand is eligible, from fruit and vegetables to jam and maple syrup!"
 
You can click on the "Farmer's Club" tab on the top of the page and print out the form.  If you are unable to print, you can just send your information when you mail the check.
 

Strawberries may be the most popular crop grown on the McElwain farm, but we sell a variety of vegetables and small fruits during the summer and fall.

 A retired country schoolhouse serves as the farmstand, where we sell lettuce, beet greens, chard, cukes, peas, new potatoes, string beans, tomatoes, summer squash, zucchini, sweet corn, green peppers, broccoli, apples, carrots, onions, pumpkin and squash.

Check here, our facebook page, or call the farm (207) 498-8276 before coming to pick strawberries. Weather conditions and customer demand will affect availability.

Hours of operation vary.  Please call or check fb for updates. facebook logo sm
