Welcome

A few Ensuring Cape Elizabeth’s Farming Future…

The Cape Farm Alliance is a group of farmers, fishermen, gardeners, horse lovers, business owners and supporters of aPicture1 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!

 

STRAWBERRY FEST 2015 will be June 26th and 27th!  More details soon.

What’s in Season Right Now?

As we wait (and wait, and wait!) for spring to emerge, you can access fresh local foods from our farms (and other Maine growers) – at Alewive’s Brook Farm market on Old Ocean House Rd., in Cape, and from The Farm Stand on Cottage Rd. in the Mill Creek/Knightville neighborhood of South Portland. Also, several of our farms are growing in hoop houses now, so we should have earlier-than-usual spring greens soon!  And of course we’re still enjoying fall’s storage crops: carrots, potatoes, beets, onions, sweet potatoes, squash, onion, turnips, rutabaga and kohlrabi,

 

Lots of Events on tap statewide; visit our Events Page for listings/details.
