Thirty Acre Farm is a MOFGA certified organic mixed vegetable farm specializing in fermented foods. We have been farming and fermenting our delicious krauts and hot sauces since 2004 and are committed to making our products almost entirely from the vegetables grown on our farm. Currently we grow seven acres of annual crops on beautiful riverside fields in Midcoast Maine.
In 2019 we purchased a picturesque new home farm on Broad Cove in Bremen, Maine. Construction has begun on our new kitchen facility and we look forward to processing our first batches of Sauerkraut there in the Summer of 2020.
Our products are sold in natural food stores and large grocery chains in Maine and across Southern New England. We also attend the Portland Farmers' Market on Saturdays in May through November and have been members since 2006.
