Try some sustainably sourced Wild Planet Foods organic chicken and anchovies! "With our belief that a healthy planet is comprised of living water and living soil, we have expanded our product line to include our first land-based product – Organic Roasted Chicken Breast. This premium chicken is raised on an organic diet — including non-GMO corn grown on land that is free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. Wild Planet supports organic agriculture because we believe what happens on the land ends up in the water. Studies show chemical runoff from conventional farming practices finds its way into waterways, which ultimately flow into the sea, creating anerobic dead zones where sea life cannot exist. Wild Planet’s support of organic farming and the production of our organic roasted chicken is a step toward keeping our waterways and oceans healthy. Organic agriculture: the land-based equivalent to pole and line fishing…and a cause worthy of Wild Planet’s support!"

Try some delectable Springdale Creamery cream cheese from Waldo, ME!

"The Whitcomb's raise Jersey and Guernsey dairy cows in Waldo, Maine and also market a variety of meats and cheeses, available at the farm and at local farmers markets.  

In 2015, after years of dreaming, Springdale Farm Creamery was born. We process our luscious Jersey and Guernsey milk into a variety of cheeses and specialize in Fresh Cream Cheese.

Colby and Lois Whitcomb purchased their farm in 1951 and through the years have built a heritage of productive vibrant cows and high quality milk. In the early years of the farm, Lois and Colby grew a market garden, had an egg delivery route and sold sides of beef and lamb alongside sales of their milk. The grandkids, Carrie and Holly Whitcomb have returned to the farm and are taking it back to its roots by direct marketing products to the community much like their grandparents."
