We have been baking and growing things for 30+ years. We opened our family business in 2007. We were members of the Lakes Region Farmers Market in Windham for two seasons, but decided to start something even more local to us. What could be more local than a farm stand on your own front lawn!

We feature home made from scratch and home grown products. We like to support other businesses who have the same mission as us, supporting local agriculture. That’s why we use whole wheat flour & oatmeal grown right here in Maine, as well as local Maine eggs, salt, butter, milk, fruit and anything else we can get our hands on from this great state.

At our farm stand (open seasonally May-October) we sell a variety of products, most of which are grown or produced by us or close friends with our same passions. We also offer a CSA program.

The Farmers’ Eight Daughters Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program is your opportunity to receive farm-fresh, delicious vegetables at a great value, and without having to “go shopping” for them. When you become a CSA member (by buying a ’share’ in our farm for the season) we become your direct source for food, and you become the reason we grow it. For more information on this program, visit our website www.farmers8.com

Products Description

<p>The idea was simple: to raise some kids and live off the land! So in 1977, we packed up our belongings and moved the family to true country, 42 acres in New Gloucester. We traveled down a dirt road, which had once been a cattle path, into a driveway which led to a large cornfield. We immediately started our homestead. Before we knew it, the family we started with there became 8 girls, and the idea of living off the land grew as well. Over the years, our “gentleman’s farm” has always been a source of food and enjoyment for our 8 daughters and their families. Besides gardening, we have raised our own beef, pork, chicken &amp; turkeys - how else could you afford to feed all those mouths! We have over an acre of vegetable and flower gardens, as well as a maturing orchard and a small vineyard. We have always prided ourselves on doing things naturally and organically on our farm. We still love working the land as much as when we first started thirty years ago, and have expanded our growing space on multiple properties in town. We are glad to be sharing our products and joy with you through our farm stand and other local venues. Stop by and visit us and see our passion for growing your food.</p>
Markets

<p>We currently sell at our farm stand at 28 Intervale Road (Rt. 231) in New Gloucester. We also offer a CSA (slots limited) and that information can be found on our website www.farmers8.com. It is a pick up CSA, but if you live in the surrounding areas of Poland, Pownal, Gray, Auburn.....it is not that far a drive. And yes, there really are eight daughters :-)</p>
