Bumbleroot Organic Farm is a certified organic farm located in Windham, Maine, just 20 minutes from Portland. We grow vegetables, flowers, and herbs for sale at local farmers' markets and through our CSA.
2017 CSA Shares Sold Out
We have sold all our CSA shares for the 2017 season! Thanks to all our members for investing in Bumbleroot. We can't wait to supply you with veggies all summer long! Our first pick up is Wednesday, June 7th, and will continue weekly through mid-October. If you missed the chance to sign up this year, please keep us in mind for next season! You can sign up for our newsletter below to stay up-to-date with all the Bumbleroot news.
The farm is greening up and we're finally able to get into the fields on a tractor. We've been prepping and planting beds for the past two weeks and will continue our busy planting schedule through the month of May. In addition to an irrigation well we recently drilled, we have other infrastructure projects to finish in order to get our season off the ground- a new high tunnel, wash/pack area, and coolers to keep our veggies fresh! Spring is a busy time but it feels good to be back outside and to see the fields starting to fill with food. See you out at our farmers' markets!
If you're going out to eat in Portland this spring, keep your eye out for Bumbleroot's name on the menu! We partner with more than 10 restaurants in the Greater Portland area, including David's, Surlie, and 555 in Portland, MK Kitchen in Gorham, and Tao Yuan in Brunswick. We are continually amazed by how committed local chefs are to using Maine-grown products, and grateful that so many have been willing to work with us.
First year on our new farm
In 2016, Bumbleroot purchased the beautiful Weeks Farm property in Windham, Maine, a quick 20 minutes from downtown Portland. This spring we will be busy building the new infrastructure we need to operate our vegetable and flower business. We'll build a wash/pack station and walk-in coolers, which are essential to keeping our produce cool and fresh as it comes out of the field. We'll also be putting up a high tunnel which will protect our tomato crops from wind and rain and allow us to extend our season later into the fall. We are so grateful to the Weeks family and Maine Farmland Trust - they've helped us make our dream of owning our own farm a reality!
Proud to be
We are committed to using sustainable farming practices to improve the health of our soil and the integrity of our land. By using only organic fertilizers and soil amendments, planting organic seeds whenever available, cover cropping our fields, and rotating our crop plantings, we have held to MOFGA's (Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association) organic standards. They have granted us our certification and we're proud to call our vegetables, flowers, and herbs organic.
