Chick Farm in Wells, Maine

Know Your Organic Producers!

At Chick Farm in Wells, Rick and Marilyn Stanley produce vegetables (including asparagus and sweet potatoes), raspberries, broilers and eggs, which they sell through farmers’ markets, natural food stores and at restaurants. "Each farm activity - whether it's livestock, gardening or timber harvesting - complements the rest," say the Stanleys. "The result is healthy crops, healthy animals and a farm operation that is gentle on the environment."

Please support MOFGA certified organic farmers and producers!

Bangor Daily News - 9/5/2009.
By Sandy Oliver – Barbara Barrett of Eastport wrote a couple weeks back, “I have lost a wonderful blueberry cake recipe that came from a pamphlet. …As it turned out, Barrett had lent the pamphlet to a neighbor who saw this column and remembered that she still had the brochure, which she gave back to Barrett right away. From all the information you sent, it appears that this recipe – and others – was published by the Maine Department of Agriculture in a pamphlet through a few editions.
