Farming has been in the Carlson family for over 150 years.
Our ancestors farmed in Sweden before coming to America in the late 1800's. They cleared the
land for planting and settled in the Stockholm - New Sweden area of northern Maine.
Our family moved to southern Maine in the late 1950's to be closer to markets.
We farmed over 125 acres of land in the Bowdoinham, Richmond, Dresden and Woolwich area. Our only crop at that
time was potatoes. A lot of the land had never been farmed and it took a couple of years
just to get it ready for planting.
Changing with the times to meet our customers' needs
70's we expanded to sweet corn
80's we added pumpkins, summer and winter squash, tomatoes, cukes, carrots, onions, beans, beets, and garlic
90's we started growing dried flowers and set up a small greenhouse to start some early seeds
