2017 CSA Sign-Ups
Bumbleroot vegetables and flower shares are on sale now! When you join our CSA you will receive a big box of certified organic vegetables each week for 20 weeks from June-October. All vegetables are grown on our farm using sustainable methods. Weekly pick-ups will be on Wednesday evenings at the farm in Windham or at the Portland Food Co-op in downtown Portland. Please go to our CSA Program page for more details about how our CSA works, or sign up here!
First year on our new farm
As of November 1, 2016, Bumbleroot has officially moved to our permanent home at 196 Highland Cliff Road in Windham, Maine. We purchased the beautiful Weeks Farm property in early 2016 and have now fully transitioned to our new space. This is a dream come true for us and we are so grateful to the Weeks family and Maine Farmland Trust for creating this opportunity for us to set down roots just 20 minutes from Portland. Production will be in full swing come spring. See you in 2017!
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.
Our Flower CSA includes ten weeks of Bumbleroot's own fresh-cut, seasonal flowers arranged into a bouquet to be picked up at our CSA locations on Wednesdays. The first flower shares will go out in late June and you'll get one each week through mid-September. We'll also have bouquets for sale at our farmers' markets as well as pre-ordered bulk flower buckets for those of you interested in creating your own floral arrangements for weddings and events. Check out our Weddings and Events page for more details.
If you're going out to eat in Portland this winter, 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.
