You might be surprised if you took a walk around our Winterport, Maine Fruit Tree Nursery.
It’s not what you’d expect.
Our children can roll around the ground on our farm, play nerf guns among the trees and pull a carrot to eat straight from the dirt without one worry on our part.
At Winter Cove Farm, we are proud to be part of a growing community that puts our children, our community, our land, and water before profits.
At our Maine Fruit Tree Nursery, we teach people how to:
We live in a Zone 5a and personally test each of the varieties that we offer. Ensuring they will grow in a challenging environment.
We work with beyond organic principles, concentrating on soil health and balancing the ecosystem.
We’ve found a way to grow healthy, nutritious food, within an ecosystem, without using man-made chemicals, intensive management or doing damage to the environment.
We teach others how to do the same whether you have 1/10th of an acre or 100 acres.
We do this through our classes throughout the growing year and in our online information.
We believe that we are meant to be in community, working together to create regenerative orchards and food security throughout our communities working towards the restoration of the earth and the people within it.
