Meet Emilia Carbone and Jed Beach of 3 Bug Farm in Lincolnville, Maine. They and their four sons, Ray, Silas, Luca and Tait, grow all the MOFGA-certified organic vegetables you can think of, plus flowers, seedlings, black raspberries, table grapes, strawberries and in the coming years a larger diversity of fruit. Find 3 Bug Farm produce at their farm stand on Route 235 in Lincolnville and at many midcoast stores. The farm is named for the swallowtail butterflies, fireflies and dragonflies that populate the area in warmer months. Growing organically helps achieve this biodiversity and a complex and balanced farm ecosystem, say the farmers, adding, "We have made a promise to not overdevelop our property and to work with our surroundings." Having four boys always snacking on the farm produce is another great reason for being organic.
