We grow a diverse range of certified organic produce year round. Our farm is located in Bowdoinham, Maine and our fields are along the shores of Merrymeeting Bay. We are lucky to have farm fields that are free of rocks and comprised of silt loam soils, perfect for growing produce, and we are even more lucky to farm in such a beautiful place! As we work in the fields, we are often joined by eagles and osprey flying overhead, foxes playing on the forest edges, and fish jumping out of the Bay. We have even seen a few seals swim by!
Six River Farm was started in 2007 by Nate Drummond and Gabrielle Gosselin. Our first year, it was just the two of us growing 2.5 acres of vegetables, and now we grow 20 acres of vegetables and have 20 employees during the main season, 10 of whom work with us year round. We manage a total of 40 total acres of land between what we own and what we lease, and for the health of our soils and our plants, we rotate where we grow our crops each year. We became certified organic by Mofga our first year farming and are proud to have remained certified organic ever since. We are always striving for the right scale and techniques for a sustainable farm- sustainable for our family, our employees, and the land where we grow. And we are always learning new ways to improve!
We farm year round, and we sell our produce at Brunswick farmers markets, our Bowdoinham farm stand, and local restaurants and grocery stores throughout the year. By using multiple heated and unheated greenhouses we are able to have fresh greens throughout the winter. We also make use of our greenhouses to have summer crops as early and as late in the season as possible. We aim to have as much produce available as possible for as much of the year as possible and to provide our customers with all of their vegetables year round.
We are grateful to live and farm in such a beautiful place, to work with fantastic employees, and to be part of such a supportive community!
