FISHBOWL FARM

Fresh baby salad greens grown to perfection right here in Maine. This is what we do at Fishbowl Farm. We have dedicated ourselves to becoming really good salad greens farmers. It’s our goal to provide Southern Maine with the freshest and best tasting salad greens possible.

How are we able to do this? After a decade of farming every vegetable under the sun my wife and I had our first child, Calliope. In order to allow more time for our new family, we simply decided to refocus our energy and expertise on the crops we loved to grow the most, salad greens. With ten years of experience now focused upon a handful of salad crops we are best able to attend to the needs of each salad crop. And harvest it at just the right moment. We then carefully wash and pack them for delivery the next day. Our salad greens are never more than a day from harvest to delivery. We take great pride in our salad greens and encourage you to taste the difference.

OUR PHILOSOPHY. OUR PLEDGE

Fishbowl Farm is committed to producing healthful, nutritious, and safe food of the highest quality, while protecting the integrity of our environment

We choose to use sustainable methods of farming because we believe that these methods place priority on the promotion of healthy nutrient rich soils. From this foundation of healthy soils comes healthy plants and vegetables. Furthermore, healthy plants provide the most nutrient dense foods best able to fend off pests and diseases. With reduced pest and disease pressures we are reducing the need for applied preventive measures. When necessary, we use only materials approved for use on Organic farms to control these problems.

We Pledge to practice only certified organic methods of farming. Never will we use synthetic or genetically modified products in the production of our crops. With your support of Fishbowl Farm you are protecting the land, the farm, and the biodiversity of the earth for generations to come.
