2015 Year in Review

2015 was a great year for Wildfire Fellowship Farm!

In 2015 we doubled the size of our CSA and added the option of A la carte produce buying.We were able to offer order pick up at both our farm and Old Squire’s Farm Market in Norway. We will be working to expand both buying options in 2016.

This spring saw the arrival of our first Scottish Highland beef cattle. Over the coming years this herd of grass fed beef cows will help improve and grow our soils. They will also  provide healthy and nutritious meats for our family and customers. Our initial breeding stock was brought to the farm from a herd located outside of Caribou Maine. Our grass fed beef program will take many seasons to build, however, this effort brings our farm closer to true sustainability.

2015 saw our second annual open house for our CSA members. It’s always fun to have our members out at the farm. Seeing where your food comes from brings a closer connection to our local food web. We look forward to expanding our open house day in 2016!

Despite a dry season we were able to offer beautiful organic produce to our customers from June until December. The challenging weather delayed some crops but we were able to make in through.

As this year comes to a close we reflect on what was and look forward to what is to come in 2016. Thank you to all our customers, we look forward to serving you in the new year!
