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!

What’s in Season Right Now?

So much!!  Tomatoes, corn, beans, summer squash, pickling cukes, cauliflower, cabbage, greens, peppers, potatoes, garlic, leeks – the list is really looooong this time of year – and will be through October at least.  It’s the time of year when the harvest just keeps on comin’!  Buy extra and can or freeze for the winter.

You can purchase fresh local foods from Alewive’s Brook Farm market on Old Ocean House Rd., at Green Spark Farm’s self-serve stand on Fowler Rd. (organically certified) and from Jordan’s Farm at their market on Wells Rd. and at The Farm Stand on Cottage Rd. in the Mill Creek/Knightville neighborhood of South Portland.

The Well at Jordan’s Farm is still open for the season (’till 9/30 – though closed 9/22), serving up amazingly delectable locally grown foods, for dinner 5-9, Tuesday – Friday; reservations recommended, as it has become really popular. (Cash only.)  Join Cultivating Community October 4th for a special dinner Jason’s cooking up. For tickets, go to Cultivating Community’s website – and hurry!

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