This turnkey operation sets on the eastern bank of the scenic, Aroostook River in Caribou, Maine. The farm lays with a south west exposure that is fantastic for growing berries and apples.
This operation has many moving parts when in full swing. Starting in late July with You Pick Highbush Blueberries and mixed vegetables at the farm stand. Soon after the commercial side of the operation will start to roll with 50 or so local people, we hand and machine harvest 10,000 Highbush Blueberries plants from the first of August to early September. We deliver the bulk of the berry crop to the warehouse loading dock for Hannaford with our own refrigerated truck. The rest is delivered to 50 or so local stores or frozen in our on farm freezer.
Early September the local public comes for You Pick Apples, plus we have a crew of two or three picking for our on farm storage which gives us winter sales.
All the while garden crops are being sold and put into storage for the winter sales.
We deliver our frozen blueberries, apples and vegetables to many schools and institutions state wide and we work with a distributor as well.
I have health issues I can no longer avoid.
As part of sale I will stay on for a year or so and help buyer with things like where the irrigation and electric lines are buried or introducing them to our buyers and contractors. All the little things that will sneak up on you when you least expect it.
We also have one full time employee and one part time for the winter. In summer we have 2 more that come back every year to help with field work.
