|Letter from Darthia Farm / October 2016|
Darthia Farm has been certified by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association for 39 years and we’ve seen many changes and hosted over 270 apprentices. Many of them are now operating their own farms. We have a CSA (community supported agriculture) program, a busy farm store, a restaurant account, and participate in the Winter Harbor Farmers’ Market.
In spite of the severe drought, we had a great year. Our new farming partners, Shepsi, Liz, and their children, Harbor and Cedar, joined us in March and are a fantastic addition to our farming operation.
The gardens flourished and fed 30 CSA families as well as provided food for the store and for everyone living on the farm. Thank you for your trust in us.
We hope you all have a wonderful, safe, and peaceful winter.
Bill, Cynthia, Shepsi, Liz, Harbor, Cedar, and the horses, Star, Archie, Andy, and Duck Toller Kelpie.
