Welcome

Ensuring Cape Elizabeth’s Farming Future…

The Cape Farm Alliance is a group of farmers, fishermen, gardeners, horse lovers, business owners and supporters of a vibrant and sustainable Picture1 local food future for our town.

We work cooperatively throughout the year to “ensure Cape Elizabeth’s farming future,” to increase access to local food, to help maintain the rural character of our town, to enhance the economic viability of local farms and food-related businesses, and to raise awareness about local farming, fishing and food.

Check out our initiatives, attend a meeting or Cape Farm Alliance event, find a local farm or consider lending your financial support!

Come To Our Winter Lobster Stew Supper – Feb. 27th!!

What better way to chase away the winter blues, than with some rich, divinely delicious Lobster Stew?  Made fresh from locally caught lobsters and served up alongside homemade biscuits and an array of incredible farm-baked pies!

The Cape Farm Alliance is reviving a beloved town tradition of an annual winter Lobster Stew Supper – started and run for many years by our volunteer firemen. There will be two seatings of 75 people each, 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., at the Cape Elizabeth Fire Station. Tickets are $18/person, regardless of age, and are available here, but only until Feb. 21st –  no tickets will be available after that date (and may be sold out sooner).  Plan to join us – it will be fabulous feast!

And of course, don’t forget that two of our farm stands are open year-round, selling Maine raised foods: Alewive’s Brook Farm market on Old Ocean House Rd., and Jordan’s Farm at their ‘Farm Stand’ retail location on Cottage Rd. in the Mill Creek/Knightville neighborhood of South Portland.

You can buy fresh winter greens from our Green Spark Farm (certified organic) this winter at the Portland Farmers’ Market at 84 Cove St. in Portland’s Bayside neighborhood; Saturday mornings till 1 p.m. And Alewive’s Brook Farm also sells at the Saturday indoor Saco market and the Sunday South Portland market – 10-2 in the old Hamlin School on the corner of Rte. 77 and Sawyer Rd.
